I have an NEC 42PD1 and want to get the best picture possible.

It doesn't accept component video inputs but I want to use the component output from my DVD player. I know there are converters. Where can I get a good one?


Also, it doesn't accept HD formats. How can I get it to display HDTV?

Is 1080i out of the question?


Before I get DTV, I want to know if I'd be wasting my money.


Did I buy an HD capable unit or just a great 42" monitor?


Thanks for any help

You need something called a transcoder which will convert your DVD's component output to RGB. They can be purchased from AV Science and may others. I'm guessing your NEC plasma's resolution is not HD; it might or might not accept HD formats and scale them down to fit your panel. Check you user manual.

The NEC 42PD1 is a public display plasma. It is not designed for HT use. It will display 852x480. So no, you won't get true HD out of it. You need a Key Digital transcoder. Conntact Alan at AV Science.
