Default Re: Optimal PAL Video Out

Hello

New forum member here. I have just completely re-vamped my MythTV setup from an EPIA M10000 board driving a CRT over Composite to my new setup:

ASUS A8N VM CSM
Panasonic TH42PX600B 42" Plasma (Native res 1024x768)

As I don't have the TV-Out "card" I am connecting the two using a DVI -> HDMI cable.

Picture looks good alignment wise but I get bad motion "juddering" which is caused by interlacing or maybe the 50/60Hz issue - I'm not sure which.

Before I start delving deeper into modelines and refresh rates, I wonder if I could get some general advice about going forward. Have you been able to get any sort of decent playback of PAL material from an Nvidia based board?

My TV has SCART, S-Video, Component and HDMI inputs. Am I doing the right thing using DVI -> HDMI? That's the same way I'm connecting my Oppo DVD player which only has a DVI output, and it works really well.

For what it's worth, I am playing back broadcast DTV in the UK.
