    Is it possible to connect a component feed (3xRCA) to a PC-in socket?

    If so, does anyone have a link for a suitable adapter cable?

    I ask this as I'm thinking of buying the new Tosiba 32WL56 LCD TV but need a component input, which this set doesn't provide.

    Also, will the connection be progressive scan enabled?

    Thanks.

    Yes you can get a component to VGA cable. A few options Here.
    Although the cables are available it does not guarentee that your screen will work with it. You need to check the specs of the screen to see if it will accept YUV component via the VGA input. If it does then it will almost certainly be progressive capable.
    I use a similar type of cable (RGBHV to VGA) between my Lumagen video processor and plasma. This is a progressive input and very good quality. On my plasma this input can be set to a large number of different options, but this is not the case on all screens.
