I recently purchased two XP29's. They don't support component. I was wondering how I can get the best picture quality hooking up a Wii. I've been considering a component to VGA converter. Not sure...

Yeah, look up component>vga/rgbhv/whatever and check reviews on various transcoders. There's an Audio Authority 9A65 on ebay right now that's going for an ok price. I recommend it.

Yep, it's a Diamondtron. And I have a NEC monitor with some faulty electronics that I believe uses the same tube. So when the tube in the Lacie starts to wear out I'll have one to replace it.
