    Am i right in thinking when i go out to buy some new wires tomorrow, that to connect sky plus to my panasonic PV500 all I can use is good old basic scart? Sky plus doesnt have component/DVI/etc - so scart is the best there is? My DVD player will be hooked up to component, but I use sky most the time so want to make sure I have the best picture possible.

    If there is anything in particular I should use a link to the product (or thread) would be appreciated.

    Cheers!

    can you do scart to dvd then through component?

    sky only does scart either composite or rgb, best to set to rgb on sky output and av input

    Its not all bad as the my 500 looks great using a decent scart ( tech-link) so I wouldn't bother about it to much. Anyway its only a stop gap until SKY HD :D

    Mine looks great with a really rubbish scart cable to AV1. Remember to set the SKY output to RGB and 16:9. I would personally use Cinema mode rather than Normal, but I don't think it's that big a deal.

    I found that routing SKY+ though my ES10 DVD recorder did diminish the PQ, so I have that connected separately to AV4.
