    After a lot of to-ing and fro-ing and wasted cash I need to know whether the following configuration will work. If it does I wouldn't mind knowing what would work better (even if it costs more).

    Equipment I want to connect to my Panasonic PW6:

    Sony Receiver with 4 svideo in and 1 out
    SKY+
    PS2
    DVD Player with component and svideo out

    1. I was thinking I could just connect them as follows:

    SKY+ to Receiver - Svideo to Svideo
    PS2 to Receiver - Ps2 cable to Svideo
    DVD to Receiver - Svideo to Svideo (Is quality better if I use component?)

    2. Then can I just get a single port JS Labs Scart to VGA Convertor to get everything to the Plasma?

    3. Is there a quality loss having the extra step through the AV receiver rather than straight to a purpose switching units.

    4. I know this is perhaps a stupid question but can a scart lead carry composite, RGB and s-video? :zonked:

    FIRST THINGS FIRST....................... JS Technology RGB> VGA PLASMA converter Will NOT work WITH S_video thats why its a RGB>VGA box...
    DVD will be better with Component...... so you want the dual slot Component S-video board for plasma PS2> amp Sky+>AMP AMP to Screen S-video
    DVD>PW6 component

    OK.

    When you say 'dual' I can only find a TY42TM6V for S-Video and TY-42TM6ZC. Do I just go for both of these? For the component if my DVD has RCA conncetors am I better getting the RCA version of the board?

    Is there any reason why there is no JS s-Video to VGA convertor? Is the s-Video quality not worth trying to improve further?

    I dont know ask Dr John..... but however the RGB>VGA converter is a sync stripper not an actual converter hence why there is no loss of quality..... AV_sales seel the dual slot board Reason: cheaper than buyiing 2 boards and BNC is a better connnector (need a RCA to BNC lead nowt special just need to speak to someone who knows what they are doing)
    £180 dual board at AV-sales or £130 per board..........
