I couldn't really get this questino answered in the relevant plasma/rptv threads, maybe you guys will know.


Many panasonic HD TVs, including their plasmas and LCD rear-projection sets (but NOT their LCD panels), tend to have a slightly soft/blurry image when using component input, even at 1080i. I'm guessing this is just from their scalers/deinterlacers/etc.


It isn't always bad, but for an HD set I want something much sharper, esp on HD material.


So.. has anyone observed this quality seen this go away when using DVI at the TV's native resolution? (1280x720, 1024x768, 1366x768, etc). I'm wondering if this will circumvent whatever video processing is causing the fuzziness.

You don't use component video with a Panasonic plasma screen. You drive it at native rate via VGA or DVI. It is definitely not blurred when running correct pixel mapping (native rate)

I have a Panny ED model (...6UY) and the optional DVI card. Running 848x480 (essentially native res) from my HTPC with ATI AIW Radeon 32MB card (circa 2000) I can use Mark Rejhon's background, or DisplayMate's free backgrounds, and I have one to one pixel mapping. Using WinDVD, I am constantly amazed, and IMO it is as good an image as Discovery HD Theater coming in through component.
