    I know it will only downscale as the PWD8 is not a HD panel. But via what connection will it downscale? Is it only via HDMI or will it downscale via component/VGA and Svideo?

    Im thinking of either buying a Snazio or modded xbox for HD divx/xvid clips. Not sure which way to go at the moment.

    Thanks.

    Walter - yes through HDMI and Component (including VGA). No idea about the Svideo though.

    Matt, have you watched HD divx files on yours?

    Someone shoot me down in flames, but you can't get an HD signal over s-video. Only component/VGA/HDMI/DVI are your options for HD signals.
