    "RGB 3 Phono to 15 Pin HD VGA" (for YUV) from http://www.beststuff.co.uk/specialist_rgb_leads.htm

    Does (can) this really do what it says?

    Not happy with the component board on my new LG MZ42PZ45V and was looking at this for an alternative...

    Any thoughts greatly appreciated

    I use a very similar lead to the VGA port on my plasma and it's very good. You can pick these leads up very cheap on eBay, most are overseas suppliers at the moment but postage on these is very reasonable.

    I got one for my PW6 from Keane Electronics for £25. Works a treat!

    Very encouraging responses, thanks :)

    Now, is anyone using one of these on an LG? Preferably the one I mentioned above.......getting 'cold feet' about the quality of the LG component boards =/

    Getting RS to replace mine tonight (VERY PQ on component board inputs) - if its still no good, I will need a solution via the DVI or VGA ports as the PQ through them seem superb (hooked PC up to test).
