    RF, via a 100 way RF video splitter, 200M length of cheap & nasty coaxial cable, looped around mains cable. :p

    Sharpness to max, incorrect aspect mode, tint to max, colour to max, contrast to max.

    hmmm maybe I should get a job in Dixons? :)

    Jmack,

    If your Toshiba plasma is a rebadged Panasonic (which IIRC it is) then I would recommend the component video connection. The DV88Plus can then be used in progressive scan mode and its deinterlacer is better in many ways than the one in the plasma. And,if you want to try the system with the DVD player in interlaced mode, then its a simple enough matter to change this over in the DV88Plus's set-up menu.

    HTH,

    John Dawson (Arcam)
