[mythtv-users] What to do for better TV-out

Hi all,

I've been building a MythTV 0.20 box for a good friend of mine, who recently 
purchased a huge Pioneer plasma TV.

Since the plasma TV has a VGA input, I decided to use that for sending the 
signal to the TV. Good idea it seems, because the MythTV menus show 

After a lot of browsing and reading, I decided to use a PVR-350 card for TV 
reception. Unfortunately, when we watch TV, the picture provided by the 
Mythbox is about half the quality of the normal TV picture on the plasma TV. 

Obviously this is a big turn-off for my mate as far as using MythTV is 

Now I would like to check with you guys if there's any way to improve the 
picture quality drastically. One thing I was thinking of, is using the 
PVR-350's S-video out. Is there any way I could get close to the normal 
picture quality of the plasma TV? I'm even prepared to buy another card ...

Thx a mille!
