    HI
    Does anyone know by connecting a DVD to the pioneer pdp5404 using the HDMI lead will improve the picture rather than an RGB scart?
    I'm not going to get a HD signal by watching a DVD am I?

    Thanks

    The HDE plasmas are made to work well with HDMI, you should see an immediate iprovement in the picture. Cynics like me believe this is partly due to deliberate non-development of the alternative inputs, and it helps Pioneer to sell more big ticket DVD players.... DVD's are not yet hi definition, so no it won't be real hi def, even though you can set a 868 player to output 720p. If you do this, the player simply scales up the 576 pal lines to 720. Then the screen scales the 720 lines to 768. IMHO this cannot be a good thing, but a bit of experimentation is called for, you'll need to see what the 504 likes to receive from the DVD.
