My father just purchased this Panasonic TV. Up until now Ive used an old analogue satalite box to receive EuroSport for free. Can I plug this into the new TV, either direct or with some sort of additional d/a convertor?
Yes. If you click on the "specifications" tab on the linked page that you posted you will see a "21 pin" socket mentioned.
That's a SCART socket - so connect your old analogue box to it via a SCART to SCART cable.
Thanks Chris, I'll hook it up, see what happens. I was checking that TVs spec list, and it appears to come with both digital and analogue tuners, so I guessed there had to be an A>D convertor in there somewhere.
I though the presence of an analogue tuner, would indicate an analogue to digital convertor onboard the TV, to enable an analogue picture on screen? Much like my analogue satellite feed would require the same? Thats what I was figuring was the potential problem in getting my sat box working with this TV, not so much the connection, but an onboard A/D convertor. No?
