    I have a Toshiba 55" RPTV model # TP55H60. Will this TV support 480p through component inputs?

    Jake,
    Judging by your model number, it won't accept 480p. Toshiba 4/3 sets that will accept 480p are all designated as HD-ready. Model numbers should be XXX71, XXH80, XXH71, something like that, not H60.
    Check your owner's manual for any reference to High-Definition capability.
    If it's not HD-ready or HD-capable, which should be prominently mentionned in the manual, it won't support 480p.
    If there's no mention of HD capability, you don't have it and it won't accept progressive scan.
