    Yes but the TV won't accept progressive input from what I remember reading about the TV spec but I stand to be corrected - check the spec or speak to Philips - if it doesn't say "Progressive scan" then it won't.

    I don't think Philips has a CRT TV which accepts the progressive input.

    The TV has Progressive scan built in.

    Are you sure???? Where does it say that in the spec?

    Don't you need to have component inputs on the TV? - the 9618 doesn't have component, only scart!

    Yes I'm sure and if you have one like me then you will have the manual on page 11 of which under digital options you will see that whenever it is fed an NTSC signal you have the option to select Movie plus, Pixel plus or Progressive Scan.
    When fed a PAL signal the Progressive Scan option turns to Digital Scan whicch I have read is the same thing really.

    Seems to be a little confusion.

    "Is it possible to connect a progressive scan dvd player?" I think Theo meant to add "outputing a progressive signal?". I believe only certain Loewe TVs accept progressive input via Scart so unless it has a separate component input, the answer is - no it is not possible. Interlaced RGB is your best bet. That said, the TV can take interlaced frames and convert them into pseudo-progressive. Depending on how well the TV does it, the "Progressive scan" setting will look more like a true progressive output from the DVD player.
