Thanks. That's very useful to know, as I am very tempted by a nVidia- 
based card with component-out.

I'm assuming that you're using the nVidia binary drivers; in this  
case I guess the bug may be expected to affect all cards with a  
nVidia-based chipset & a component-out. :(

Is it possible your telly accepts PAL progressive only through RGB  
SCART? And not through component?
I don't know if this is fair conjecture or not - someone slap me if  
RGB SCART is by definition limited to interlaced input.
