    I though I would let you all know my the final cost of my plasma project, as I have got all my cables now.

    Plasma - £2233.95 (just got the credit card bill :eek: ) from RGB Direct
    M8 Rawl bolts - £15
    12mm Masonry bit - £8
    Mains cable (3m) - £35 from Mark Grant
    Component cables (3m) - Belden - £60
    and 1/2m (£40) from Mark Grant
    HDMI cable - Molex - £25 from Mark Grant
    VGA cable (5m) - £80 from Mark Grant
    SCART (3m) - THOR - £23.50 from TV Cables
    2 pairs phono leads - £23 from TV Cables
    Xbox hi-def kit - £22 from Lik Sang
    Component switcher - £60 from JS tech
    HK DVD 25 - £105 - from classifieds (old one hasn't got component)
    New Hi-fi stand - £110 (secondhand)

    Sold ES-10 - £150

    Total cost - £2703

    I think that's about it...for now.
    On top of that, I am redecorating (about £1000)
    Plus there's the house I bought as the old one wouldn't fit a plasma in :confused:

    I know it's a dit daft but I thought it would be interesting to add it up, I haven't gone silly on leads and stuff, I have put in what I would consider decent quality without going over the top.

    I will also get it ISF'd at some point - £275

    Think yourself lucky.

    My wife sees the project as an opportunity to revamp the whole living room

    Fireplace and fire - approx £2,000
    New Sofas - approx £1,900
    New Carpet - approx £900
    New furniture - estimate £1,500
    Decorating - about £200 and a lot of hard work

    oh and ....

    then there's the plasma, which of course she considers an expensive extravagence!!

    Cheers,

    Nigel

    Well, when I were young I had to get up in the morning, half an hour before I went to bed, drink a cup of sulphuric acid.........................




    And you try telling kids that today, they just won't believe you

    It allows you to play xbox games in hi-def modes if they support it.
    I don't know much about it TBH, you are best doing a search in the gaming forum.

    You have to do something with a splinter cell save to make your XBox NTSC or have it chipped.
    I got the kit but not looked in to it yet.

    42PV500 (Inc: 5m Power Lead, 5m RF cable, 5m Audio cable, 5m Quality Scart, ES10 DVD recorder, Wall bracket & 2yr warranty) - £2600
    5m quality Component cable (Done on the cheap as I purchased all the other stuff from them and they make the cables up in house) - £40
    QED - 5m HDMI cable £55
    Another £40 or so on Trunking/fillers/Tools etc..

    I know I could have got it cheaper on-line but I wanted to purchase from a local specialist and I wanted it NOW!!

    Won't even go there with what it has cost me financially with the misses!!
