Amikit on 42" Plasma TV

Hi!,
Just made myself an 'Emulation Station PC', with MAME, Amikit and ton's of other classic emu's on it.

Hooked it up to my new Panasonic 42" Plasma TV (had VGA connection) and WOW!!!.....Amiga gaming just became a whole new experience for me

It never looked this good on my 37" LCD TV...must be the quality of the plasma screen???

Might even try my 'real' Amiga A1200 on it soon (scart - or maybe VGA adapted lead?).

Anyway just to say I'm glad to be back into the retro gaming thing....much to the annoyance of the wife

Real Amiga on 42 inch plasma looks GREAT!! I have an RGB -> SVideo adapter made by AmigaManiac (www.amigamaniac.com).

Thx fatboy, looks good, and maybe, you can do better quality image by tweaking filter stuff on Winuae.
Plasma is better than LCD for sure; Maybe i'll invest on something similar soon;
