Hi, I'm eagerly awaiting the arrival of my Philips 32PF9830. In my mind's eye, I look forward to watching HD content, sourced from the Internet, and outputted from the laptop to the LCD screen. And I think I'll be able to achieve higher quality (upscaled?) output if I use the same setup for watching DVDs too? My standalone DVD player is ancient, with only a SCART output. My Laptop is a cheapish Sony Vaio VGN-B1VP, which so far as I can tell doesn't even have a line out for the audio! I would very much appreciate any advice for best setups to achieve this,with details on any cables, software, and other hardware needed. Also, are there any particularly good sources of HD content on the Internet? Perhaps something DivX? My current plan is to use the VGA-DVI cable which is apparently supplied with the 32PF9830, and to purchase a SoundBlaster Audigy 2 ZS Notebook (PCMCIA). With the latter I imagine I can either use a line out to the LCD, or perhaps connect directly to my GigaWorks 7.1 speakers. I've heard mention of software called Powerstrip, but don't know how this fits in. Also, is there any particular DVD software player that is recommended? I *think* my laptop, on VGA-out, will do 1024x768, 1280x768, 1280x1024 amongst other resolutions. A final question I have, referring to the Philips 32PF9830 product specification PDF... http://www.p4c.philips.com/files/3/32pf9830_10/32pf9830_10_pss_eng.pdf ...is this: I think DVI will provide near loss-less digital video input... but what about digital audio? On the second page of the PDF the rear-connectors include a complex looking array for digital audio (six connectors, next to DVI?). Can this be put to my advantage? Are these anything to do with SP-DIF? I think the Soundblaster has SP-DIF out. Any advice appreciated. Many Thanks.
