I have a Panasonic 36" CRT (model TX-36PG50)which may be upgraded to a plasma or LCD at some point - but not in the near future. It does NOT have Component sockets on the rear - just Scarts. It is connected to my new Sony DVD player by means of a S-video > Scart cable. (The audio from the DVD is fed to a surround amp - not the TV) The DVD player does, of course, have Component sockets. I've just noticed that Supefi are selling a Component > Scart Cable. On checking my TV user-manual, amongst the picture setting menus, there is sub-menu called 'scan mode' and within that, the option to select 'progressive'. The text which accopanies it is as follows: "We recommend you set 'Scan Mode' to "Progressive" when viewing PAL 60 or NTSC transmission". It then says "Note - when viewing a PAL transmission (other than PAL 60) with the scan mode set in 'Progressive' - the screen will flicker - this is NOT a fault" My Qu is - can I buy one of Superfi's Component > Scart cables, and watch hi-quality Progressive Scan quality pictures on my faithful CRT ???? And secondly - if it DOES, and I buy said cable - will my Freeview picture be affected (given the TV settings will have changed) ? I know this has rambled on a little, but I thought it best to give you ALL the info. BTW - the pictures on my beloved Panasonic CRT are still magnificent; sharp and colourful - I've yet to be convinced the Plasma or LCD offer a vast improvement over the CRT given the vast expense !! Thanks in advance.
