Hey everyone, this is my first post!
I'm looking for some insight on my HT setup, focusing on the dvd player.
I have a 36" sony wega XBR 400 and am looking to hook up a progressive scan DVD player to it. I say the SONY 9000, but it's a little pricey.(1200 +) Instead, i decided to try and make my DVD-ROM from my computer output to a tv, since the image is done in one pass onto the monitor. So, this is what i am about to do.
Going to buy a Audioauthority VGA-component converter box, hook that up to the VGA output of my Computers Video Card into the component in on my Tv. Pretty simple right?
My concern is with the scaling and the quality of the dvd software. Will the picture be worse than the Sony 9000? I'm not quite familiar with dvd computer software. Would a MPEG-2 decoder card work better than My Video Card? (ati Radeon VE) Please bring up any problems you can think of.
