Why spend all that money on a non-HDTV plasma TV?  It may be 16:9, but
with only 480V, you're still talking about NTSC resolutions.

Yes, if you have a TV with a VGA input, that's probably the most logical
one to use.  The RCA connection is a composite TV signal, which is
slightly worse than SVideo.
