I can 100% say that the AV3 input on the Loewe tv's accept both a RGB & Component input via scart using a fully wired scart cable. There is only 1 company i know of that will allow its DVd players to output component signals (INTERLEACED) via scart, that is the arcam dvd players, both the dv88 and the dv27. If your players have only phono component ouputs, there is a new cable by the ever reliable QED cable company called the AV29 which is component+sync to scart cable(NEW). I have been extensively researching the web for for progressive component input capability of the AV3 input on the loewe, it is possible without the using the so called VGA option. But you have to disable the internal progressive scanning of the loewe from the service menu to allow NTSC progressive to be recieved.
