    Hello PeteB 2000

    Neither of the Video Processors you list (the second one is not by Zinwell :)) have Inputs for an RGB+Composite Sync signal; which is not ideal for the majority of Freeview or SKY owners.

    As your LG Display already has a more than decent on-board Faroudja DCDi Deinterlacer your really looking at something more flexible/powerful than these entry level video processors if your going to make a worthwhile upgrade.

    Your Display has RGB equipped SCART sockets so again very little if any advantage to be gained by adding a JS Technology converter to your set up.

    If your wanting to optimise your system without spending near 1K on a decent Video Processor I'd be looking to ensure you had the best video interconnects between source and Display and have someone come to you to calibrate your Display (£250).

    Best regards

    Joe
