    I have recently bought the complete home cinema system and I need your expert advise on the best method of connecting the following AV kit:

    1. Panasonic TH42PW6 ( This came with the Panasonic Tuner & Tuner Terminal board)
    2. Denon 2803 AMP
    3. Pioneer 575A
    4. KEF 2005.2 speakers
    5. Telewest Pace cable box

    Currently I got my connection like this:

    1. Plasma connected to Tuner via the tuner terminal board (I think it is DVI connection?)
    2. Telewest to Tuner via vivanco Scart cable
    3. DVD to Tuner via vivanco Scart cable
    2. QED Quenex 3 (AMP to Tuner)
    3. QED Quenex 2 (AMP to Subwoofer)
    4. QED Silver anniversary ( AMP to speakers)

    Currently I am not very happy with the picture quality from the telewest cable, I can see grainy picture etc. Also I am not sure how to connect my PC to the plasma as I understand from the manual that if I connect the terminal board (slot 3) then VGA port on plasma is disabled. So my questions are:

    1. How can I use both TV and PC at the same time using split screen/picture in picture feature

    2. Is there any advantage/disadvantage of using the Tuner box in my setup here?

    Could you please suggest a better way of connection these devices or changing any cable if need be. If there is any better connection method without using the Tuner box then I can consider that. I am open to any suggestions.

    Sorry for the long query. Thanks for your help in advance.
