I have a 36" panasonic HDTV (tube) monitor (early version from a few years
ago).  It has component inputs but I think it only does 480p.  Currently
using svideo from the nvidia 6600.  Interesting to note is that I have to
run the svideo through my receiver, or on bootup I get crappy output on
svideo.  It appears that the card autodects the output type (pal/ntsc) and
it gets it wrong when I plug it right into the back of my tv.  Also
interesting is that if I plug it into the front jack in the tv then it
will work fine too.  I can plug it into the front on bootup and then it is
fine, and move it to the rear input and it is fine, just doesn't work on
reboot.  But I guess that part isn't really relevant for this, just

I had considered using an svga->component adaptor but just never did it. 
I wonder if I could get away with disabling deinterlacing if I did that. 
I live in silicon valley so I am guessing that I could find something like
that here locally.  It would be nice to try it.  I just don't like
ordering things online if I can help it, mostly when I want to be able to
return something if it doesn't help.
