    The VGA is btter for actual picture quality, but has drawbacks. You may loose certain functions on your PDP with VGA. ie. colour control and possibly cetain widescreen modes.

    Does it make a great difference to the quality of the Sky picture compared to the scart connections. I find the football on Sky Sports to be poor quality from distance with a scart connection.

    JS recommended VGA for Sky and component for DVD but he uses other way around himself to retain various control functions.
    VGA is slightly sharper than component but both are equally good depending on personal preference.
    I prefer the extra sharpness on SKY and also if you use VGA for DVD you lose progressive scan functionality which was the deciding factor for me.
    Quality of leads makes a difference too. I am still experimenting with that but generally expense pays off if you want to get the best from the hardware. Good shielding makes a bigger difference to visuals than it does to sound.
    Scart connections are much less good to my eyes.
