    Im about to get my Panny TH42PE30 and wondered if anyone could tell me the best settings I can use to hook a PC up to the front VGA.

    Is there is a special display driver I can get for this and what res is best? Will if be very clear to read text on screen?

    Well Dade... i am new to this scenario myself...i have not even got my pw6 yet that i am hankering after... but anyway someone will soon pipe up and suggest that you get (download) Powerstrip...http://entechtaiwan.net/util/ps.shtm... i have downloaded it myself to have a look at... i am sure it will do the job and give you a nice sharp image on your Panny... now you know to do a forum search on Powerstrip and see what others have done...presumably to get your graphics card to match the res of the Panny... not sure about pixel timings etc... your search should give you some clues

    Good Luck

    I have my PC connected to my Panny Viera (42") via VGA cable and have my PC display driver output 1280 x 720 pixel resolution. I reckon this is the best quality picture as the Panny accepts HD signals through VGA/PC port in 720p format. Occasional lines of text are a tad bit blurry when reading small fonts though. See the following link :-

    PS. You don't need powerstrip or similar if you have a decentish graphics card that supports this resolution.
