    If someone proves me wrong, though, I'm man enough to admit it. But as far as I can tell, the S-Video spec means 480i.
    My brother was using his PS3 with a composite cable and it looks terrible. He the bought a HDMI to VGA adapter and it looks amazing. He doesn't have an HDTV but it sure as hell looks like it is.

    Nothing surprising about that. Just about anything is better than composite. Even S-video will show a huge improvement.

    So his TV has a VGA input? Not many do, but they do exist. If he's using a computer monitor with a VGA input, it could very well be HD. But he'd be better with a HDMI to DVI connector if he's using a computer monitor.

    HDMI is several generations better of a connection than composite, and although VGA converts the digital signal back to analog, you retain most of the color accuracy and all of the resolution.

    The monitor has to be HDCP certified for HDMI-2-DVI to work. If not he will just get the infamous "black" screen.

    For my nephews setup .. I had to go component out on the PS3 to the X2VGA2 box from Neoya and then VGA to his 24' widescreen monitor, then take the L/R audio and convert that to mini din and hooked that up to the computer speakers.

    http://www.x2vga.com/

    It worked pretty sweet .. and he can add another set of components in, like a Xbox or something ..

    **BTW** HDCP is some sort of copyright protection technology .. that prevents movies or any HD content from being displayed or sent non-licensed devices

    It sounds like a good idea to get Wii componant cables then a HDMI to DVI converter if I get a PS3. My TV is a 19" LCD HD, it's an "LG M198WA" if anybody would care to do some research for me lol!

    How exactly would Wii cables work on your PS3?

    I wouldn't expect them to...

    EDIT: What I mean is, ue up my component cable ports on Wii component cables. Then if I get a PS3 get a HDMI cable for that and a HDMI to DVI converter for connecting it to the T.V.

    It'd be far cheaper to order it from America.

    Hooray for poor economics and low-value currency!

    I just looked up your TV and it is not HDCP certified so HDMI-2-DVI will not work.

    There is a device called HDFury (I dont know any one that has used it) that will disable HDCP. Take a look at it when and if you get the PS3
