Been scanning the forum for a while and fingers crossed if I can sell my house should be buying a plasma at end of February. If not I will be a little on the poor side. I like the Pioneers (saw LOTR on one and it was fantastic) for pictures but currently favour the panasonic because I have heard it copes with SKY signals better and its higher contrast. I have a PS2/Xbox (I use these for DVDs and they look fine on my 29" Tosh CRT showing I am not the biggest videophile), a marantz 5300 amp and mainly watch SKY+. I may want to pop my laptop into the plasma but this is unlikely to be more than once a month. I don't want too many wires running to the Plasma or I will need to get someone in to hide them. I probably would prefer a separate box that I could plug everything in (so a scaler is appealing). Despite the lack of a DVD player, plasma nasties on the screen (jags/green trails etc./ buzzing) would all really annoy me. Key questions 1 Roughly how much is a picture calibration (ie tweak settings) and who does these Gordon and ???? (I am in the Newbury area) 2 Roughly how much is a full install (ie hide the cabling) ? 3 Do I lose teletext if I go for a panel ie PW7 (I assume the new improved digital super slow text still works) ? Are there any other things that panels don't have I might miss (other than Tuner/sound which i can live without). 4 What are the preferred scalers DVDO iscan HD+ (do I need the plus) and lumagen vision DVI ,which features should I look out for and how do I compare them/pick between them? Will I be able to connect everything into the scaler and then just have one output to the plasma (and if so what should this be? ) 5 Which is the best setup:- a a scaler and the PW7 or the Panasonic HD panel (ideally I would love to be HD ready, but if that is the only benefit I will wait) 6 Assuming a scaler and a panasonic PW7, what cables and cards would I need (just 1?). Plus is there anything else i should budget for?
