    Hi everybody

    I am about to get my first av setup.

    I am currently thinking of the following
    Onkyo 603E AV Amp
    Kef eggs or Genie speakers
    Panasonic PHD8 or PV500
    Xbox 360

    I have currently sky+ and dvd without hdmi.

    I am planning to go via the amp for the Xbox and DVD and direct to the panel from Sky+ (maybe SKYhd in future).

    What connections boards will i need for the plasma?

    Do i just need a convertor from sky+ to the VGA connector and a component video board for the xbox/dvd via amp and HDMI board for the future?

    If i go via the onkyo amp to the plasma for the xbox360 will the hdtv signal get through?

    Anybody get any thoughts on the onkyo amp & speakers?

    Thanks

    Elad

    no your only choice for HD gaming is the component cable - look at the 360 FAQ in xbox forum for more info
