    Hi,

    Just dipping in to the market for my first projector and am looking at getting the Panny AE700. Wondering what i will need in order to connect my SKY+, Panny DVD Player (no component or HDMI) and PS2 to it with out having too many wires to the PJ, and also to be able to switch between the PJ and Plasma very easily.

    So what are my options, ideally i dont want to spend a small fortune, but am willing on spending a little bit extra if the benefits are substantial.

    Thanks
    Rob

    Do you have a home cinema amplifier with video switching and plenty of inputs?

    ahhh! do you mean this.... Quintro

    If you do should that work no problem. I take it when they say you can switch between you TV and VCR outputs.. i could use that for my Plasma and Projector with the other boxes plugged in to the inputs... yes?

    If so i'll get my order in!

    Rob :)

    Thanks to this thread

    I bought one of these to allow me to send my stuff to either the TV or PJ.
    Haven't had the time/inclination to attack the rewiring yet, but it supports 2 RGB outputs from 4 inputs and I couldn't find anything else that did. The model that does this has inputs labled 1-5, the older version doesn't do 2 RGB outputs and has them labelled TV, VCR1, LD etc.

    Beware the SCART sockets are really close together so you may need to buy some straight plug SCART leads
