    I've got a problem. I have a good TV, a LOEWE PROFIL PLUS, but I don't have a component input (RGB). My DVD is progressive scan, with all possible outputs.

    My question: Is there any way using prog. scan with S-VIDEO, composite, or scart?

    Maybe there's an adapter I can get? Anything.

    I can't buy a new TV.

    Thx,

    T.

    Does it have a VGA (HD15) input, like on the back of a computer's video card?
    If it does, you can get one of these players to input into it through the VGA: http://www.hivizone.com (click on DVD Players, and look at the ones with the VGA output; they run about $250 USD)

    If the TV SCART input jack is wired for RGB (it may or may not) and also the TV accepts 480p, you can feed 480p RGB in directly with just an appropriate cable, or component using a transcoder (sold separately) and an appropriate cable.
    If the SCART jack is wired for component as opposed to RGB or S-video, and also the TV accepts 480p, all you need is an appropriate cable from a regular 480p DVD player.
