    Thanks to reading the articles from various people, I have decided to get a panasonic PW7. Being technically stupid, is there anything else I need, cable wise??? I know absolutely nothing about plasma screens etc, and would appreciate a bit of advice.
    I would like to run a PS-2 to the plasma and Sky+.
    I will also get an AV receiver, sub and surround sound with the screen (as part of a "special offer"!!
    Cheers

    assuming you are getting no input boards with it it will come with just the vga in (15 pin d-sub) you could run ps2 via scart into the vcr scart on the back of your sky+ and a scart to vga connection form teh tv scart on sky+ to vga on the plasma. For sound you can have optical (tos link) from sky and ps2 to your amp, assuming it has 2 optical inputs....if it only has one you can run the red and white stereo cable from ps2 to the amp. For scart to vga converter look at JS Technolgy, about £120 plus a scart cable (sky+ to JS) and vga cable (JS to Plasma)...hope that helps.

    It'll work, no probs mate, but if he/she is getting an AV amp etc, there might be a more elegant solution. Something like the VSX402 gives an easy route to control, something anyone can understand.
