    I am about to take delivery of a Panasonic PW6 with a Composite/S-Video/Component video board. Is there any additional card etc i should be looking to purchase, or is this the best you can have/ all you need?

    Totally agree, the Scart board, for me, gave a poor picture for Sky+, switched over to the JS RGB-VGA box and it was a magnificant improvement.

    The XBOX looped through the SKY box to VGA gives a very good picture but if you have a modded one, switch it to NTSC and turn on the HD resolutions in the MS Dashboard and plug a Microsoft HD component cable into your screen and you will be amazed.

    An alternative to a component switching box is using your amp if you have one and its got the relevent inputs.

    Is there some sort of dual VGA switch box? I have a scart board for Sky+ and would like to upgrade to a JS Box, but I use the VGA port for my computer.
