thanks michael + all... yup im going for the QED SQUART..now. i kind of guessed that this would be a good bet but didnt realise there would be a difference with video only over the audio version!?! obviously i didnt want to pay for no improvment and lose audio. buti from what you and others have said the QED SQUART RGB (video only) seems a good enough choice for the time being.. (see my HDMI question.. as you can see i sold on geting LCD or Plasma next, but will still use the scart lead i buy now for some connections).
... my display is a PAL 21" JVC FST Television, but before you laugh it is important to realize i have just GIVEN away my IDTV Thompson Scenium 32" 16:9 set because as with nearly all 16:9 CRT televisions iam dissapointed with convergance errors and geometary problems etc..
this technology is not exaclty in its infancy its just flawed..
My JVC has also got one 1watt speaker!! but it delivers the cleanest pictures from a 4:3 CRT TV that i have seen with no bleed, ghosting, convergance errors or geometary problems whatsoever. it has no picture options other than brightness and contrast! very basic direct view TV for broadcast monitor.
