    I would go for the dual slot board, this will give you component/s-video/composite on one board.
    Then order a JS RGB->component transcoder for your sky and input it on the component input of the dual board.
    You can hook your dvd into the S-VHS player and then one cable from that into the plasma.
    I have one 5 core (RGB/H/V) cable from my kit to the PW6, component over the RGB and then S-video over the spare 2 cables. This keeps it nice and neat.

    The scart input board on the panny plasmas is a little soft compared to component, and even that is very slightly softer than the VGA input.

    Don't go and buy a nice new TV and hook it up with crap connections.
