    I was looking at getting a Panasonic E85 to take input from sky+ (via SCART) and output to a PWD6 plasma screen component board.

    However, by upgrading the hard disk in the sky+ i don't really need a DVD recorder, so thought I may be able to get a better quality player for a lower price - but it would need to be able to output to the screen.

    Any suggestions ?

    Thanks
    Dave.

    You have probably thought of this, but how about a Panasonic e55 instead.

    Will still give you the scart rgb to component conversion you need (inc prog scan) plus dvd recording and is only just over £200, making it alot cheaper than the e85.

    I use an e55 connecting my sky box to my ae300 projector and it works a treat

    The cheapest I can find a multi-region E85 is £408, and think the E55 was about £220 I think. It is another £200 but I'm reluctant to buy a DVD Recorder that doesn't have RAM (although I'm not exactly sure why!)

    It sounds like I'd get a noticeable quality difference from a decent player only, but if it has to be an E55/E85 to get the component out then so be it!

    Thanks
    Dave.
