    I have a Panni PWD6 (852x480 pixels) hooked up to a Pio 868avi via a Beldon component cable (slot 3) & a wireworld HDMI-DVI-D cable (Slot 2).

    I'd have to say that in all my time with this kit (about 10 months now) I've hardly ever seen a better picture with the HDMI/DVI output (maybe T2 the exception) even when switching to a wireword £150 HDMI/DVI-D cable?

    I also noticed the other day that when I had the DVD payer on but wthout a disc in it I could see very small green dotted lines accross the screen when veiwing the HDMI/DVI feed?

    I have a few questions about HDMI settings for the DVD Player

    1. What is the best picture setting for my plasma for region 1 discs ? VGA 640x480, 720x480p or 1280x720p?
    2. Why do I have different resolution options when I don't have a disc in the tray?
    3. Does the player actually transmit a HDMI signal when also connected to a component cable as switching between the two screen I don't see any difference?
    4. What is pixel mapping/matching?
    5.. Finally, I can actually play most R2's via the HDMI out which shouldn't happen with the plasma?

    I'm not 100% convinced that I'm seeing the best from my DVD player & plasma.
