Hi, I have a Philips 25" TV and it has component(RGB) inputs. I was curious if this meant that it received progressive scan information from these inputs. Like if a DVD player or something else sent it a video signal, would it still be a standard NTSC interlaced signal or a progressive signal? Thanks!

Component video signals can be anything 480i, 480p, 720p, 1080i. What your TV will accept is another question. Unless it is a digtial HD ready TV it can only accept 480 interlaced inputs (NTSC).

Not exactly... the TV does not have to be "HD ready" to accept/output 480P. 480P is Enhanced Definition TV (EDTV).
So... read the specs, perform a search on the web or provide the model number of the TV and find out what the comp inputs are capable of supporting.

The tuner that is in the set will only do 480I (NTSC).
