I've tried it on an 32" LCD TV (both a Sony and a Sharp), and the quality 
was lousy. I then tried a VGA converter (as the Sony didn't had VGA in) - 
better but still ppor. Now I've got the Hush connected via VGA to the Sharp 
TV @1280x768. Quality is excellent for my usage.

Don't know about that - I'm using it as a front-end only and builtin VGA

I've been running the machine for a while now, without any problems.

If you're using a regular TV (non-LCD), results may be satisfactory. I'll 
be connecting a second one to a regular small-screen TV next week...
