    i would like some advice on the JS Technology RGB to Plasma VGA convertor.

    i have a Panasonic TH-42PW4B 42" plasma tv and want to connect Sky Plus to it using this convertor. At the moment it is connected via a scart to composite video connector and the picture is very good. How much of an improvement will i see by going from RGB to VGA ?

    Also when i have my PC connected to the VGA i only get the options to display 4:3 and 16:9, will i have all of the other options available (such as 4:3, 16:9, Zoom, Panasonic Autio & Just) if i use the above convertor. I can't use component as i have my DVD player and Xbox connected in there.

    Does anyone know where you can get a component switcher box so that i can connect both the xbox and DVD player up to the Plasma tv and switch between them without actually replacing connections as i do now.

    how about using a quattro switcher, get some phono to scart convertors and plug them all in via it

    or as recommended by someone on this forum, use a audio/video (composite) switcher, much cheaper

    If you're using composite video then going to RGB will be a big improvement.

    You should have 16:9 4:3 and Zoom modes on VGA.
