    My understading is that when connection a component signal to the Scart3, you could get de-interlacing (100Hz) for PAL and internal progressive scan (60Hz) for NTSC.

    What about PAL60? Will it be de-interlaced or progressive scanned?

    Is the PAL vs NTSC really an issue for a component signal, or is it 50 vs 60 Hz that matters?

    Do a search on these forums for "Loewe Progressive" and will find a number of good posts on the subject. It's still unclear as to whether or not the Loewe does actually de-interlace NTSC (or PAL) material. It does not do proper Progressive Scan for NTSC without feeding the Loewe a Progressive signal. This must be done through the optional VGA board on the TV.

    I got this from Loewe Germany when I bought my Xelos around a year ago.

    Dear Mr. Booth

    The Xelos with Q 2400 chassis has the ability to show a progressive scan
    picture with a interlace source. But only with NTSC-signals. The
    progressive scan processing is done inside the set but it is not possible
    to play with external progressive scan sources.

    Best regards

    Also check out the spec in the TV instruction manual which states:
    PAL/SECAM 100hz
    PAL60/NTSC 60hz proscan

    cheers

    There is much more to this than meets the eye. We've covered this quite extensively on other threads.

    The Loewe's in UK have crap de-interlacing to create progressive image. They have no 2:3 or 2:2 pulldown detection to reconstruct original film frames from film based programme material. Using an external processor of some sort and the VGA input borad will bring the best results from NTSC DVD .
