Hi all, I have recently purchased a Philips 43PP6360 43" RPTV.
THe TV has a 25 point convergence system plus many picture enhancement tools for perfect picture (Like all of them I guess
The Philips is a 50HZ tv and has S-Video Input on the back, plus the YUV DVD three RCA plugs on the back as well.. In the manual it states that the YUV inputs are 480i / 520i compatible.. I don't think its an HDTV. But it was very very cheap (about $1400 US) and looks great.
Now, I have been running a HTPC for a couple of years on an old TV with S-Video and was intending to do the same here. I was intending on buying a top quality S-Video cable too.
1. What is the resolution I should run the Graphics card at through the S-Video cable... 800 x 600 or 1024 x 768 .. ? Willl signal be interlaced or prog?
2.How many lines of res will my HTPC DVD player put out?
3. Should I worry about getting an adaptor so I can use the component ports from VGA to YUV? Or because the TV is only 50Hz and not HDTV, will it not matter?
4. Should I just buy a standalone DVD player to run through the component inputs?
5. I am just after the best picture here using this RPTV, in the brochure it states that the RPTV has over 800 lines of resolution, how can that be?
Any suggestions would be very appreciated
