Sorry if this is a bit OT, but I'm upgrading my PC screen (to a 19" TFT) and I'm also taking the opportunity to re-jig the connections between the PC and my Home Cinema set-up, which has a Pioneer 433 at the heart of it. I'm not a great fan of plugging cables in and out all of the time, and I don't want to buy any switch boxes or splitters if I can help it. My PC graphics card outputs VGA, DVi and S-Video. My current set up is VGA to an old CRT monitor, and S-Video to the Plasma for displaying photos, MPEGS etc. The quality to the plasma is not good. The new monitor will take either DVI or VGA, and I need to take a look to see if there is any noticeable quality difference between the two, before I take this any further. Whichever output I use to the monitor, I'll use the other to drive the plasma. Anyone else tried this, and is there an appreciable difference in quality. With all of the gear positioned as it is at the moment, it will be difficult to do any sort of back to back test without buying 5-10 m VGA and DVI cables!!! To complicate things further, I have nothing driving the plasma via DVI at the moment (although a DVD player upgrade is always possible....) but I have my Sky+ via a JSTech box into the VGA port!!!! So I can either; Connect the PC to the plasma by DVI, but have a sub-optimal VGA connection to my shiny new PC monitor Connect the monitor by DVI, and have some sort of VGA switch for the plasma Use a DVI splitter, but how do I manage different resolutions, aspect ratios between the monitor and the plasma? Choices, choices...... Your expert thoughts on this conumdrum are welcome as always!!! PS supplementary questions, based on comments on the HCPC/HTPC/HDTV forums. I'm trying to minimise the number of scaling and analog/digital conversion processes. My poorly informed guess is that the "cleanest" path (from PC to plasma) is PC output on DVI at the "native" resolution of the plasma. Is this correct? And what exactly is the "native" of a 433 MXE. Merry Christmas!!!
