Connecting dvd to THPD9 via component


Active Member
I have preordered a Panasonic TH-42PHD9, but now I wonder if I really need a component terminal board ?

I have a 8m component cable (Monster V3) w. RCA/RCA from dvd that I wonder if I can connect to on-board VGA using RCA->VGA adapter plug?
Any sacrifice in PQ?

I haven't ried with an adapter but certainly a RCA>VGA cable works just fine on PHD8 and there is no compromise whatsoever on PQ.

But my cable is RCA-RCA. Just wonder if the adapter would cause PQ decay

How much is an adapter? Suck it and see. Otherwise buy an 8m Component to VGA lead and sell your Monster lead through the forum.

You would have to find an adaptor, which would more likely be 3 female RCAs on a lead to a D-Sub. Any join in the lead will cause additional loss. For all that, you could just buy a component board - probably cheaper than a new 8m lead!!!!
