    Is a simple scart lead the best way to connect Sky+ to the PWD8 (with a Panasonic Scart terminal board) or is there anything better that can be done?

    I would see how you like it first......I'm sure I read somewhere that they have improved the scart connection (though to be honest it was never as bad as some make out). You can always consider the js rgb to vga converter if you think PQ could be better.

    it depends on what your doing for sound?? If you are using the plasmas audio outputs then yes that is the best way, however i use an amp that upscales s-video up to component then component out from the amp into the plasma board and im really happy with the picture quality i have to say.

    If your going for 5.1 / 7.1 surround or whatever and your buying an amp its something else to look at.

    The s-video upconversion does work well. If you are a PQ obsessionist, you will realise that you are losing out on some picture info, and that a component video converter (from RGB) or a VGA converter is 'better' but many mortal men are happy with scart or S-video upconversion, there is not a lot to choose between them in practice, though you lose auto WSS as soon as you ditch scart.

    Sorry - work for a company that thrives on 3 letter acronyms. If you were listening to a corridor conversation you would think that were speaking a different language. I suppose this game is no different.
