I've only recently found this board and have spent hours reading up on people's experiences, ideas etc and found it very informative and have finally plucked up the courage to make my own post. After seeking some professional advice about whether to go for a projector or plasma I finally plumped for a plasma. Sorry, I know all the newbies with PW6's seem to be asking very similar questions and I have searched through the forums but I haven't really found the answers that I need. Basically I have a Panny PW6 being delivered on Tue with the usual connections, vga, scart, so I need to hook it up to my existing equipment. I'm new to all of this so I've only got level entry stuff which consists of: Sony DAV S550 DVD player - component video out(Y Pb/Cb Pr/Cr) & can send progressive, s-video, composite, optical digital in, audio/video jacks in, audio/video jacks out.....NO SCARTS! Sky + receiver - scart to TV, scart to video, optical digital out...... So, I need to now connect the PW6 to the above equipment, I'm always looking for simpliest way of doing things but I also want to get the best out of my equipment. I think the Sky + to PW6 is simple enough which I intend to do from scart to scart, is this ok? The real problem I seem to be having is connecting the DVD player to the PW6. I've come across a component to VGA lead (VESA cable??) which I think will do the trick as I believe the PW6's VGA input can be configured to accept component signals?! but, am I losing any quality by going component to VGA? - I've attached a picture of the cable in question. As for sound, I've got an optical digital cable from my Sky + box to the DVD player with 5.1 sound which works well at the moment. I presume this is ok? So, if any of you guys could see their way to offering some advice on where I'm going wrong and/or your solution to connect my equipment then it would be very much appreciated.
