    I am disappointed with the quality of DVDs played back on TV from my Dell laptop (1.8GHz, Mobile Radeon 7500 graphics), using its S-VHS output. My 32 ins TV has a RGB scart input so I wondered if using that would be better than the s-VHS. I have a docking station that will take PCI cards, so I could use the Sigma X-card, which has RGB output. How does the X-card video quality compare to a stand alone DVD player? Presumably its much better than an external VGA to RGB scan converter, like the Grandtec GXP2000.

    I don't think PC DVD playback ever looks good on a "regular" TV, irrespective of connection etc..

    The X-card's RGB output is probably the best option available but given the low cost of standalone DVD players now, I'd say that is the best option.

    Patrick,

    If your Radeon chipset supports interlaced + composite sync output from the VGA port (set up via Powerstrip), you can make a lead to directly connect the VGA port to your SCART socket:
