Have you tried playing any of them?

TV's that support USB playback will mostly play Mp4 H.246, Mpeg 1 & 2, Divx and mkv.

Try playing a selection of files, the TV will either play them or not.

What about for progressive scan?

I'd have to say a DVD using component/prog scan would have a slight edge over RGB scart.
