    I have a 37 PW7 and i am using a pioneer 668 avi hdmi player. Is there anyway that i could use the hdmi from player to vga input of screen.

    Is there any kind of adapters available and will i get any improvement at all over the component that i'm currently using.

    Help would be appreciated.

    you could get an HDMI board for teh panny but general concensus seems to be that these screens give the best results with an analogue signal anyway

    yes but it doesn't accept 50hz whereas the VGA port supports all res/Freq.

    Hello,

    Have a look at Keene http://www.keene.co.uk/ search for product code DVIFIX

    Its a DVI to VGA converter.

    Not cheap and I dont know if it would work with your DVD and plasma or not !

    You need advice from one of our forum plasma experts...


    Mark.
