I have a HTPC with an EVGA e-GeForce 7600GS Video Card. I have this connected to my Hitachi 42" plasma via a component connection. So far, the PQ is horrible via this setup. I have played around with various resolution and setups via the NVIDIA utilities,but I can get anything near what I was expecting. I am very satisfied with the HD PQ on this monitor. I am starting to wonder if this monitor has a limitation with component.
With the Underscan option turned on, at least the whole desktop is displayed on the plasma, but it has a nice black border (actually, horrible black border). I feel that there is some fundamental concept that I am missing. Perhaps just using component is a bad idea.
I do have a D-Sub and RGB inputs on this set, but due to lack of planning, I only have component running to this location. (yes, that sound you hear is me banging my head on the wall for not running RGB and DVI cables).
Anyway, can anyone give me some advice would be appreciating. In the mean time, I will keep searching the forum.
