i've just connected the pioneer 436xde via VGA to my laptop. just to see what it like the quality. Pioneer res running was running at 1280 x 768. (Is this the highest res the pioneer supports?) It was amazing. really clear and sharp. also watched a HDTV demo of pioneer 506/436 downloaded from pioneer website. it looked proper vivid and sharp. Perfect. has any one else tried or/is connected the palsma to Pc or Laptop.
