Ouch. It's silly for the TV set producers to wait for the STB producers
to implement RGB/component inputs and VV. Like I said, I haven't seen a
TV set without at least a scart input over here for ages, probably over
ten years, even the very cheapest ones. VCRs of course do not offer an
RGB signal, but DVD players do (at least the European ones). Don't have
US DVD players some sort of component output then?
