1) Is there any way of getting Loewe TVs to accept a progressive scan input without using a PC to generate the signal? Is it feasible, for example, to attach a component-to-VGA converter to the output of a prog scan DVD player and feed that into the Loewe's VGA card input? Or could one use the output from some sort of external scaler or deinterlacer device? 2) Assuming that all I care about is getting the best possible picture quality and that I am totally uninterested by what the rest of the set looks like, or by its audio capabilities, what is the best (i.e. cheapest) model to buy?
