Could someone with more experience tell me something - I am cautious of 
building a VGA -> SCART converter, but perhaps I do not need to be. It 
has always concerned me that I might send a signal that is WAY out of 
range down the wire (frequency, voltage etc), and damage some aspect of 
the TV.

Is this possible? The TV is a reasonably recent 32" widescreen.

How does the TV handle the text-mode signal? Does it sync well enough to 
be displayed before X kicks in, or is the boot-sequence hidden?

Is there a site where I can read-up on this type of issue?

Many thanks for any answers.
