    I am posting this for a friend. His firewall at work is blocking access to this forum for some reason.
    -------------------------------------------------

    I have just purchased a Sony PFM-42B2 Plasma TV. The TV has 2 VGA inputs and NO component inputs. It has a picture resolution of 1024 x 1024. It was designed mostly for commercial use and not really for home theater use. I am going to use it in my home theater however.

    A link to the spec sheet can be found at:

    My questions are as follows:


    - Can i get a true HDTV signal since i do not have component inputs? If so, how?
    - Sony makes a component video input adapter (analog component input) that can be purchased for the TV. Would this give a HDTV picture?
    - What options should i explore in order to get the best picture i can out of this unit?
    - How can I get a progressive scan signal from my DVD player?
    - Ideas? Thoughts?


    I appreciate your time,
    Greg Lunday

    Greetings

    The DISH 6000 receiver has a 15 pin RGB output in addition to the component output for HD.

    A component to RGB transcoder will work fine with the unit. ($160 range)

    Regards

    So he would be able to get a true HD signal through this converter?
