I have been pondering recently how to get Sky HD (at launch) without having to upgrade my TV straight away. I have a Philips 37PF9965 Plasma (non HD ready). This is an HD Alis panel (1024*1024 pixels). It has component inputs, but Philips (in their infinite wisdom) have restricted this to interlaced inputs only (no progressive signal will work at all). So, 1080i might work (haven't tried it), but 720p is a definite no-no (I know this having tried an upscaling DVD player at 720p). The Philips however does have a VGA input which accepts RGBHV signals. I've tested this in the past with a borrowed scaler (Iscan HD), and found that it would work with every conceivable input resolution, except 1080p. One (very expensive) way to get Sky HD (via analogue component) would be to buy an iscan scaler. However, this won't work unless I buy the very latest version, as the HD+ (and previous models) will only "pass-through" the 720p or 1080i signals, they will not transcode to RGBHV. Another (cheaper) option I've identified is to buy a converter unit to accept component input, and output as RGBHV. This would cost approx £140, including shipping. The model I'm looking at is as follows:- https://www.audioauthority.com/inde....audioauthority.com/?p=productMore&iProduct=1 I know you guys have vast experience, and would welcom any feedback / guidance before I place an order.
