    well surely the company you bought it from discussed your cabling requirements with you and the fact that the HDMI board is not yet available and that the Panny scart board is useable but there are better options ie the JS RGB>VGA BOX

    I looked at a spec sheet for the above and it said that the screen has a couple of RGB scarts built-in. No boards needed! Does that mean that scart quality is going to be better than through a board?

    The only connection this screen comes with is a VGA port, everything else is extra

    Hi geeWcee, :hiya:

    A HDMi is a straight "Digital" connection between source and panel = NO Analogue to Digital conversion = Better PQ! :clap: ............ simple realy. (At least in theory! ;) )

    Oh, and its highly likely that the next generation High Definition disc players expected @ the end of 2005 / early 2006, (either HD DVD or Blue Ray) will reserve their "full resolution" output to their digital connectors only, (be it HDMi, DVI HDCP, SDI or some new fangled alternative) due to the copy protection advantages offered by digital connections over the old analogue ones.

    These players may still be equipped with analogue connectors, be it Component, RGB Scart or even S-Video, but High Definition signals "may" be "downconverted" from these outputs. ......... It certainly looks like this might be the :censored: case!

    So, if your buying a panel now and you think you may be interested in High Definition DVD in one flavour or another, (or even Sky's proposed HD TV service in 2006) you would be best served by looking at buying a higher resolution panel now (1366 x 768 pixels) and in addition making sure that it has digital connectivity available, if not on board, then at least by way of optional plug in digital input boards which could be bought later on.

    Hope this has helped and I've not put you to :boring: lol!

    Best Regards,
    Keith.



    Best Regards,
    Keith.
