    Hi guy's , just bought a Panasonic PW7 and need advice on which way to go in terms of connection. Although I 've just joined the forum , I've been reading many of the posts for the past two days since finding the site , and have been absorbing as much info regarding terminal boards etc.I have visited JS Technology and have the info on converters etc, and am now wondering what to buy .Most of my gear at the moment has been connected using scarts with a manual switching box, I now know it isn't just a simple job of connecting these to a plasma screen and away you go. I need converters , but is it to be RGB to video/RGB to plasma/RGB to S-Video .All I want to be able to do is connect my various boxes [and there is alot of them] to my new Plasma screen . I do hope you have the time and patience to explain to a newbie the right way to go .Many thanks

    wow , my heads spinning with all that technical jargon, If I were to suggest I buy a RGB to plasma VGA converter [js] and a Quintro scart controller [5 inputs] this would answer my question about connectability ?? or is there something I've missed ? . many thanks.

    JS box will only accept RGB so feed 4/5 devices into quintro on RGB (not sure if you can use all 5 for RGB tho) then onto JS RGB>VGA box and up to VGA on screen
