Hi. I got tired of all the connection problems. In the end I took the plunge and upgraded my ancient CRT for a new LCD TV. It costed a lot more than a cheap graphics card but I think it is worth it. It's perfect :) Thanks for your support anyway.

Hi. SCART is a European (stupid) thing, which is not very well supported by PC cards - as well as much other equipment. SCART inputs might often accept s-video input. If your does, this is probably the way to go. Regarding analogue picture quality, I think it is like this: VGA (often called "PC-input" on TV's) Component (red, green...

I had a 42" plasma at the lower res, and loved it. Depending on how close you are too it, you wont be able to really read text at the 1024x768. But then again, I was about 8' away from mine. really. I ran it at 800x600 and it just looked awesome (it interpolates it). However, shop around, while I love newegg, I find them...

No, I have not made any progress. The TV that is there is fine so I'm not in a hurry. Shopping for one is just frustrating. Really haven't found anybody that can say something sensible about this 24p issue other that most sets can do this. Maybe the newer sets are all ok, I do not know. VdR
