hi been thinking about getting the philips dvdr 980 from currys £399.00
been thinking about connecting it to the plasma and how to go about this
how about the 2nd scart from my ntl box to the dvdr then s-video to the plasma
any thought on this ?

One thought, buy a dvd with progressive scan and connect it via component to the plasma. You'll want a component connection for the plasma to get the best results and rgb or s-video will be poorer substitutes respectively, on a screen which will either reward or punish depending on what and how it goes in.

i allready have a philips 962sa pal/ntsc progressive scan dvd going to the component, the 980 will be used for tv recording
does it have a built in tuner

The 980 does, but it'll probably not look as good as digital. If you are going to pair it up with a digi box then you could daisy chain them by hooking the NTL rgb scart socket to the recorder and then the rgb out of the recorder to an rgb to vga box to plasma which would offer the best result. Try lookin on the dvdplusrw.org site's forum for more info on this player.
