No, I was only joking. Honestly, I haven't had a chance to view anything in 480p on this display. The plasma came with a VGA to component adapter cable that gives you the option to connect a DVD player by way of component to the VGA connection on the TV. But I can't seem to get a clear picture. I can get audio fine, but the Image is "ghosted". It may just be some settings that I have to change. If anyone is familiar with this TV's settings, I welcome the help.
I can get a good and clear DVD picture through the component connections on both the DVD player and TV, but I don't think that's 480p? The picture is great, but still a little grainy.The manual says that I can get 480p through only the VGA connection.
Back to HD, I have had a chance to see full HD on a friend's DLP HDTV, and it looked great. It was actually an HD satelite feed, and it's kind of difficult to watch any programing in anything less that HD now.
But for my own setup, I'm using a standard def satelite box with this 42" plasma by way of s-video. And I know that most of you who have seen the difference in picture quality between s-video and HD, are thinking..."why?". I know it's sometimes painful to watch, but SD the only option I have right now .
That reminds me of another question, If and when I do get HD programming for this TV, how much better will the HD picture look in 480p when compared to a standard def picture? Will I notice a difference right away?
If anyone can help me out with my questions, I'd really appreciate it. Thanks again in advance... and Happy 4th.
