Hi, this is my first post on this great forum and today I will be mostly talking about connecting stuff. I have read most (if not all) of the sticky threads regarding interconnecting equipment. Unfortunately most of these are aimed at the lowest common denominator regarding the equipment involved (if your tv only has one scart, etc) What I would like to know is what would be the best way of connecting when ALL the options are available? I have a Panasonic Viera TH42PV500 which has 3 scart (1 of which is RGB), DMVI (nothing to connect to this - yet!), Component RGB, digital audio, etc. I have a panasonic dvd (DMRES10EBS) with component RGB as well as twin scarts, a Sony Video recorder again with twin scarts and a SKY+ box. My amp is a Sony STR-DE495 Cinema amp. OK. - so how best to connect all this? The video recorder has my lowest priority - to be honest with sky+ (and now the recordable dvd) it will almost never be used, however if it could be connected where I could record from tv/digital tv/sky digital without degrading the quality of anything else - that would be great. The dvd is a no brainer - direct connection to the plasma by way of component RGB (progressive too - nice) and I would assume the Sky+ box would go direct to TV via RGB scart. I can't see how the video would fit in under that scenario though. Audio wise everything is going to go through the amp. however I have SKY+ and dvd fighting for the digital audio - can I have one plugged into the coax and one into the optical? if not (as I belive is the case) which should win? I'd really appreciate some help on this as I will be installing the Panny on the wall and all these cables are going to be hidden behind plaster - I don't want to make a mistake now which means I need to pull it all out and rewire. Look forward to some informed responses!!
