    It`s probably been covered somewhere down the line,but if someone could set me straight I would appreciate their input.If my t.v. will accept an rgb signal,and my dvd player - skyworth - is outputting a progressive signal via the vga output - will this work,just curious as a letter in Widescreen review issue 50 along the same lines got me thinking.If not what are the requirements of a tv be it direct or rear projection as I am starting to look at getting a replacement and need to know some specs to enable me to do some scouting around. :confused:

    It's extremely unlikely it'll work.....

    You need to find a TV that will accept a 32kHz scan rate signal through it's RGB input, or component.

    If you can live with the bad quality of PDP (plasma) then you could wait until Dec/Jan time when the new ranges of 32" PDP's are released.

    Other-wise you could try looking for a data/PC garde monitor, would be expensive though, but miles better than any normal TV.
