Can anyone report on the signal quality on the S-video output? I need to connect it to my widescreen 854x480 resolution plasma (sorry - no available VGA/DVI input) - will the quality be good enough?

would you list a model number for your plasma?

Just guessing that a 480i signal would not look very good.

It's the panasonic TH-37PW5.

So maybe a DVI->Component showing 480p would be a better option (if possible). Anyone who knows if it is possible?

The mac comes with a DVI-I - VGA adapter.

Your TV has RGB input.

Get a VGA to 3/4/5 bnc adapter.

VGA to component takes a bit more to convert. Don't be confused in that the component and BNC inputs look the same.
