Greetings all. I have finally succumb to the fact that research can only get you so far and sooner or later you need to ask people who have hands-on experience. I am looking to purchase a new plasma television. The brand and options considerations for this purchase both take a back seat to the fact that I need a plasma that can occasionally double as a monitor for my computer at a minimum resolution of 1024x768 without any extra modification. Actually, the higher the resolution that is possible the better but from what I understand, plasma monitors rarely display a vertical resolution of higher than 768. A business associate of mine just purchased a 42-inch Sony plasma and tried to run a computer signal to it using a DVI cable between the two. While the picture was incredibly sharp and clear, the maximum resolution that he could achieve was 640x480. Now, even after finding a television that matches my needs I still have no idea which connection I should be using. My computer naturally has both VGA and DVI outputs, and converter boxes that convert VGA to component are also available, so the question is; given that I have the input options of VGA, DVI, and Component at the TV, which one will produce the sharpest picture at the best resolution? I have run my computer display out to a TV in the past using S-Video and the results were god-aweful. I need a clear sharp picture. Another way to present my situation would be with the following situations. Which is the best solution? 1.)Computer (VGA-out) -> Plasma TV (VGA-in) 2.)Computer (VGA-out) -> VGA-Component Converter Box -> Plama TV (Component-in) 3.)Computer (DVI-out) -> Plasma TV (DVI-in) Thank for any comments / suggestions. Also, I my entire post is erroneous and this cannot be done on a plasma, would a LCD TV/monitor be a better option?
