Component Prog Scan PQ

What PQ can I expect to get from using a DVD player with progressive scan/Component out?

How much better than using RGB Scart will it be, will it be comparable with HD?

Component's technically capable of High Definition. It's what people in America have been using to connect their HDTV boxes for years. But that's coming to an end over security paranoia so you won't get upscaled HD pictures out of any DVD player over Component (except for a few unknown brands as well as a Samsung one that can be hacked to output HD over Component).

It won't be a million times clearer than RGB SCART but the motion will be a lot more natural looking and it'll give a little increase in clarity. Particularly if you're watching PAL DVDs because most LCD TVs still don't have proper handling for Interlaced PAL movies (2:2 Pulldown). If you see hints of jagged lines when things move over RGB SCART, a Progressive Scan player will stop that.
