    Which is a better way of wiring up a digibox -

    a) Linking it directly to SCART input on Panny 6

    b) Linking it via SCART to JS RGB-to-YUV converter, then YUV out to YUV in on Panny 6?


    Both methods will cost roughly the same, however I believe method a) will be more useful for future expansion.

    So which will produce better Video Quality? a) or b)

    Thanks!!

    I saw the series-6 panasonic demoed at AV-SALES and found method b) to look slightly sharper.
    As Joe has said in a couple of his threads you have to balance out the fact that the SCART is slightly softer against the ease of connection.
    AV-SALES used a powered scart switching box (Quintro ), to Jsim box which resolves most issues you may have.

    One other suggestion made by Joe (!), is instead of YUV converted get a JSim plasma VGA then you don't even need to purchase a component board for the plasma.

    If you want to hook other things up, like a video or camcorder or something, SCART might be simpler. The convertor boxes only convert RGB and not composite so bear that in mind.

    Following advice regarding the connection of the Pioneer 757Ai PAL prog scan box to the Panasonic 6 via RCA->D-type input on the plasma, is this method of connection in any way inferior to connection by RCA->RCA?

    Thanks.

    From what I can tell no. But I'll have my component board to do a one of one comparison hopefully later in the week.

    Lydecker, what digibox do you have? The Netgem Freeview boxes can output component via its scart socket. All you then need is the appropriate scart<->3 RCA cable, or scart<->VGA cable(i believe the Panny accepts component via its VGA socket.)

    Thanks Neil.

    I'd appreciate if you could let me know the outcome of your testing.

    :)
