    I was wondering if any 9986 owners had bought a better component - VGA cable. If so, where from and does it make any improvement?

    Am also thinking of getting a VGA Y splitter cable so I can connect my PC without moving the TV. Anybody tried that, not sure if it will knacker the VGA signal.

    I bought one for my 9976, from Lektropacks(http://www.lektropacks.co.uk/dept.asp?dept_id=80). I needed a 10m cable and paid around £50 I think. Seems a reasonable enough cable for the price.

    If I'm honest, there is little noticable difference between the picture quality of component compared to RGB scart. Also, there are only two screen format options via component on the 9976 - 4:3 and widescreen. So if you are watching a 16:9 picture you can either have it with black bars all round or stretched out of shape!

    Never tried a VGA splitter cable, so can't help you there.

    Hunter, You need a separate Component cable to connect to the adapter.

    S.Helton, if you are watching a 16:9 movie it should fill the screen perfectly! Wotcha doin wrong? Quality should be better with movement - no juddering.

    Get back to us.

    Hi Jimsan

    Probably didn't make myself clear - an anamorphic image is displayed correctly via component. However, if I record a 16:9 format movie off the TV (onto Sony HX900 recorder), when viewed via component I can either watch it in 4:3 (which shows the black bars at the top and bottom of the image, as well as the sides) or in widescreen (which just stretches the image width, leaving the black bars top and bottom).

    If I am doing something wrong please let me know - I have a £50 cable which is not getting much use at the moment!!!

    Check the output menu on the DVD player. My Denon certainly has a 4:3 and a 16:9 output option on the component feed. This may allow your TV to display properly.

    Hi all. I received my 37pf9986 today and have a question about progressive scan connections. Hope you can help.

    The TV is v2.0 firmware so OK there and I will be connecting to a Panasonic DMR-E95. However, in the box I only received the VGA to DVI connector. I didn't receive any other cables with female connectors for hooking up my component cable. The manual says that I need a 3 cinch to VGA cable whatever that is.

    Can anyone help and tell me what cable I need to buy.

    Thanks.

    Steve
