In past posts I have said I must be dead lucky,connecting my PW7 with scarts and having a good PQ,well I've just come back from my son-in law's,he has a PW5 and the PQ was 30% better than mine,he has used RGB and S-Video connections,the Misses said "that's what I call a picture"so here we go again.I will buy a JS VGA converter box for a start.
What do you think boys ?

yours are all connected via scart at present aren't they (just checked your previous posts). So you could go for a component board too if your dvd has component output. After all you are only spending money to make your wife happy :)

no trouble mate, but you should be able to improve things quite a bit for a few hundred quid or so.....money well spent. Then of course you can get it ISF calibrated too! :)

Hey, steady on mate,I don't know what you mean but it sounds expensive,it's really nice to be able to ask questions and get the answers without any obligation and so intersting to read other peoples problems and the solutions.

well ISF Calibration is carried out by a few on the forum including Piers and Gordon.....it's not particularly cheap but for the results it is well worth it. They professionally calibrate your screen to get the ultimate settings for your equipment and viewing conditions. Have a look here http://www.homecinemaengineering.com/services1.html

If your dvd hasn't got component outputs then i would suggest a scart switch box to js vga converter then to plasma. Make sure dvd and sky are set to output RGB otherwise you wont get a picture.
