Hello there,

I'm purchasing one of the new Hitachi 42PD5100 screens and I'm confused as to the right connection for my sky digibox. It's scart out, so do i just get a scart to scart or do I go for a scart (digibox end) to component (plasma end)? Is there any benefit in this. I believe the digibox sends out an rgb signal.

Any help would be much appreciated.

By the way this is the deal I got from Nexnix

£2379.38 inc VAT Screen

Wall mount £105.75 imc VAT

Hitachi Extended warranty £352.50 inc VAT

Anyone got a better deal from them?

Any assistance would be much appreciated.

Kind regards

Jim

Just use a good quality SCART cable. There's no advantage trying to convert an RGB signal to component just for the sake of it, and you'll also lose automatic aspect-ratio switching.

Hi Jim,

I purchased a Hitachi 42pd5100 + 3 year extended warranty through Nexnix a few weeks ago. Last week they advised that the extended Hitachi warranty was not valid on the 42pd5100 model. Please give them a call to clarify that your warranty is valid.

For info. I have the Sky routed via Scart and DVD via S-video. Picture quality is excellent.
