No, you can input a interlaced signal, but a good progressive DVD player may very well improve the picture (since the DVD player deinterlacesbased on digital data vs. the 300u that operates on the analog signal.

I have a Panasonic RP56 going to my L300U so I can compare to the Interlaced and Progressive.
It doesn't "need" a Progressive scan DVD players, however, my DVD player makes the picture look better if it handles the de-interlacing.
The picture looks good when sent an interlaced signal through Component Video on a normal DVD player. The Progressive looks better.
It will come down to personal preference, if you like your DVD player and that's what you use now, you should be fine. We are only talking a little bit better, it's not like going from Composite to Component.
