    After reading about picture enhancement technologies ( DRC-MF, Progressive scan etc), do these still work for an STB or DVD player connected using the RGB inputs. I am under the impression they only work for composite or S-Vid connected kit.

    More knowledgeable people on this forum will be better placed to reply, but for what its worth -

    My understanding is that picture enhancement techniques such as DRC-MF and Pixel Plus are performed by the set on any incoming signal. so they will process SCART or S-Video or composite (and component if you have it). Progressive scan is different - it's really a different way of delivering the signal in the first place. Progressive can only be input on NTSC material using component video connections into a set/monitor capable of handling it - usually plasmas. The only CRT set on the market which can take component inputs are the Toshibas

    So yes, the set will do its DRC-MF or whatever on RGB SCART, but you will only get progressive scan from a DVD with component outputs into a set or monitor which can accept such a signal on NTSC material (ie region 1 DVDs).
