    assuming all source units support scart RGB....

    this is the route I would take:

    Digital cable box - RGB Scart
    pace sky box - RGB Scart
    VCR - S Vid scart - because you plasma only has 2 RGB scart inputs and s- vid I believe would be adquate for a VCR.

    DVD - Component cable

    maybe someone else can confirm if you'd save money buy purchasing a scart switch box and route everything through that.....

    HDMI requires a compatible DVD player. VCR will only work on s-video if it's s-vhs, if not you'll get a black and white picture when you set AV2 input to s-video. You'll need a scart switch to connect the set top boxes, you've run out of inputs, the classic HDE problem.
