    Have just bought Panasonic TH37PA20 TV and want to connect a PC to acheive best picture quality particulary with video but would also like to get windows to look good, also a requirement to connect Xbox.

    The set has a front mounted 15 pin VGA socket which is the obvious choice, but is a pain because it looks untidy with a cable hanging out the front.

    Has anyone had any success using 15 pin VGA to scart (RGB) with plasmas, what quality should I expect in comapison to using the VGA socket.

    PC graphics card ATI 9800 series with DVI, S-video and vga outputs.

    I havent tried with vga to scart but have used the s vid from my media center pc to my plasma,the image was awfull,ive since found even with a 15meter vga lead the image from my pc is so good even cable tv via my pc looks better that my standalone dvd via svid. Its a big enough improvment to make me drill holes through 3 walls big enough to get a vga plug through !
