    Hi all,
    I have a panny pw6 plasma ,i`ve had it for nearly 2 yrs and its brilliant.
    my question is this.
    Is there a better way of connecting my pioneer 575 to the pw6 to give me an even better picture.
    i currently have it connected by ixos component leads from dvd to plasma,and i am really pleased with the picture.
    There is a part of me that is curious to now if there is anything better.
    What are these scalers all about?
    Do they improve anything?
    If there isn`t anything better i will be more than happy to leave it all alone.

    thanx in advance to all who post.

    A scaler will improve DVD and SKY if you have it. With the PW6 the best thing is to have the scaler input it's signal into the PW6 by it's VGA socket. The PW6 has user menus that will allow you to then adjust the geometry of the screen till it matches the scaler perfectly. You will then be left wondering how you very managed wthout one before!

    Then there is always an ISF calibration if you have not already had it done.

    Neuty,

    The PWD6 is a good plasma as you have noticed over the past 2 years! It can be improved with a good scaler provided the scaler is set up properly. UKDAN has referred to ISF calibration, it makes a huge difference (I would have to say that as that is what I do) but it is also an integral part of setting up the good scalers. Lumagen and DVDO are the leading players in scalers at relatively sensible money though neither are cheap - the Lumagens give far more image correction abilities than the DVDO but with the HD+ from DVDO you get audio delay, but if you have had the PWD6 for 2 years you have presumably sorted this already with audio delay in an AV receiver.

    Are you saying the PWD6 has audio delay all the time or just with a scaler installed between them

    It rather depends on how sensitive to lip sync errors you are. Sound tends to be fractionally ahead of video on the PHD6 and many people don't notice it. Add a Sky feed and certain channels, and even certain programmes on the same channel, will have lip sync errors. Adding a video processor further compounds the problem.
