    You can change the aspect ratio. Have a look at JS Tech's convertors that'll let you use the ports you need

    Simple issue

    Get a RGB to component converter from "rgbtosvideo" with the connecters.

    DVD Player scart > Sky scart
    Sky scart > JS Component converter scart
    JS Component converter component > Plasma Component
    Video composite/s-vid > Plasma composite/s-vid
    Sky RF out > Vid RF in

    This Component connection will also let u change the aspect settings and still keep the picture quality
    I got the below set up without the vid settings, but the dvd and sky quality is amazing.

    Hmmmm, I was going to order the RGB --> VGA converter when i get my pany. Which is better to get, rgb2vga or rgb2component?

    What are the benefits from one over the other, I will be using my pc through the screen, so keeping the vga input spare would be great.

    cheers

    for the best quality u would want the RGB --> VGA converter
    the rgb2component is suposed to be a very close second. The main advantage with the compnent converter is that u can change use different aspect modes which u cannot with the VGA converter also this will keep the VGA slot free if u wanna plug ur pc in.
    Personnally I like to fiddle around with different aspect modes so the component works well for me.. it does cost more than the VGA as well.
