    OK, having read loads and loads of differing posts :rolleyes: about the Samsung 745, can somebody please answer me this question: -

    Does the Samsung 745 scale to 720p/1080i over the component connection? I know it obviously does over DVI, but component is what I need :thumbsup:

    I understand I would need the region free hack to enable this, but I would really like clarification before buying!!

    Thanks :clap:

    Now that's a question!! Anybody care to answer who has tried a comparison.

    I wish I could get hold of a Samsung just to try out, anybody in and around Kent have one I could borrow for 5 minutes!? :D

    cheers

    I compared from only a few inches away... not much difference. The picture is a bit sharper with DVI but the best thing about component is that the blacks are better (10 of 10 shades of black in the starwars THX optimizer and only 7 of 10 blacks with DVI) but I admit I have mine with DVI on the TV...

    TV is a Sharp GD1E.
