I've tried one of the VGA to component cables in the past with bad results.
The colors were all wrong.
On one of my frontends, I have an adapter box that takes VGA in and
translates it to component out. This little box works great. The TV is a
older 55" projection screen, definitely pre-HD but has component in
connectors. I remember that it was advertised for use with progressive scan
In any event, the picture quality through this box via component out is much
better than s-video.
I am at work, so I can't provide any info about the specific box. But I've
seen many like it in specialty video stores and on the internet.
