    I use a Sony vaio pcg grz615m laptop to playback avi files onto a Sony 36inch TV (has 5 scarts including 2 RGB inputs and one s vhs). My laptop only has tv out (which I assume is composite from a 7500ati radeon card). The playback is OK but how can I improve the output quality further? There is a 15 pin monitor plug (I assume vga but the TV has no such inputs)-

    Can I make/buy some sort of adaptor to convert to TV RGB/s video from the above VGA output?

    How would the output compare to a modified xbox playback?

    I am considering buying a xbox and modifying this instead if the playback quality is better- where can I buy a cheap box (new/secound hand apart from ebay) and the mods (I can soldier)?
