VGA Input

I placed this on the forum a few days ago but did not get a response. So here we go again.
My Sony FD1 tv has a VGA input which handles 640 x 480 resolution. My question is. If I viewed a picture from a DVD player or PC that had a VGA output, would it be better or worse than the RGB signal that I am currently viewing from a Pioneer 737 player?
Also, if the VGA player could output a progressive scan picture, would my TV accept it?


Cheers.....

OK, The RGB signal from your 737 is INTERLACED. It is also not a VGA 640 X 480 signal. This is usually a 60Hz Progressive signal.

Progressive NTSC is very close as it is 720 x 480 @60Hz so it might work. Except you need to transcode the Component YPrPb output to RGBHV to try it. If you are able to get progressive pal out of your 737 then I doubt that would work anyway.

So the upshot is that if you had a PC that was set to output VGA 640 X 480 @60Hz refresh it would probably work but trying to get a DVD player to work with that socket is probably a waste of time, money and energy.
