    I asked this question in the long Panny thread, but it got lost. My current DVD player doesn't have component out. Anyone have an idea how DVDs will look connected to S-Video? Thanks.

    It looks great. I have tried my PT-47 with S-video, interlaced component video and progressive component video. Obviously progressive is the way to go but the interlaced component and S-video signals were great as well! I would think you will be happy watching S-video on this set, just be sure to calibrate the set to AVIA and do convergence as out-of-the-box performance tends to range from bad to horrible.

    Carlo, by "doing convergence", are you referring to 9-point convergence that people are talking about here? Are there directions to do this, or is it explained in the manual or something? Thanks.

    Yes, the 9 pt (it's actually 2 steps, a 1 pt. and then an 8 pt.) is explained in the manual and is fairly easy to do. Doing the full 64 pt requires going into the service menu and ordering the service manual ($13 shipped from Panny). If you're a novice and are unwilling to monkey with the set, that may not be for you. If you've done the 9pt and still notice some really off convergence, I think you're within your right to call Panny up and demand a convergence by a factory authorized technician.

    Thanks, Carlo! I am a novice, but after tinkering with my WEGA's geometry for the last month (WEGA is going back for the Panny), I'm looking forward to tinkering (carefully) with this one.
