    Hi everyone,this is my first post. I've been thinking to ask this questions for some time but I finally pushed myself to do it. I´m asking some general questions aimed for gaming.
    1. When I connecti import console to 100hz tv will the picture be 120hz?

    2. Is it worth waiting for 480p SonyWega when I can get 480i enhanced whit DRC4x at 60 hz today? Will DRC work normal whit ntsc signal only whit lower rez.?

    3. Is it safe to watch movies and games in dark on good old crt direct-view tv? I was reading somewhere that watching boot tubes in dark will ruin eyes. What about rear projection tv? No problem here, right?

    4. On X-box for 480p you must buy HDTV pack, but what about PS2 or GC? I never heard about any adapter, does they need only any component cables?

    I can answer a couple of your questions :-

    1) I don't think it makes any difference if you have a 100Hz TV, games will either run at 50 (PAL) or 60 (NTSC). There are no games programmed for 100Hz as far as I am aware.

    2) Don't Know

    3) I usually watch my TV in low lighting, rarely in pitch black unless it is a horror movie. I don't know if there is scientific evidence of damage, but I personally find it uncomfortable for long periods. Rear projection is not the best for gaming as it requires the brightness and contrast to be raised, this can cause screen burn, although it is not very common on newer models.

    4) For GC you just need to buy component cables. For PS2 I believe it is the same.

    Last evidence I saw about that is that watching TV in the dark causes more strain on your eyes, so your eyes get tired faster. But, as long as you take a break every once and a while, I don't think you're risking permanent damage.
