    I need a new DVD player and would like
    to go with a progressive scan if they
    will work with an analog TV without
    component inputs. My question if they
    will work, how well against say a good
    interlaced DVD player, similar or
    less so. Please advise soonest. TIA.

    A prog-scan player will work on an NTSC set if you use its interlaced output. An NTSC-based set does not scan fast enough to be able to offer a progressive signal.

    Your set does have at least an S-Video input, doesn't it? Use that for the best picture.

    I'd recommend getting a Sony 700 for now and use its interlaced output. Then, as soon as your budget allows, spring for an ATSC-based TV and watch those beautiful prog-scan images from the Sony player.
