    Ok decided that I'm going to get a Pio 503mxe but I'm a little unsure of all the ancillary components that I need, in fact I'm totally bambozzled

    I want to connect the following to it

    DVD - via component
    VHS - via SCART
    Dreamcast - via s-video
    Sky box - via SCART
    PC - via DVI

    I think that I will utilise an IScan ultra but I'm not sure what to connect to this and what straight to the plasma.

    What cables and converters will I need and what connects to what in what order.

    regards
    John

    Firstly Buy the iscan ultra. There going cheapish at the moment.

    Dvd - A set of component leads to feed into the iscan

    SKy - your need decent scart lead into a
    JS scart-YUV convertor
    & Component leads into the second YUV port on the iscan

    iscan ultra - VGA breakout cable (vga to YUV)
    (this output from the iscan then goes to your YUV inputs on the plasma)
    that sorts out dvd and sky.

    Dreamcast as you say s-video cable reqd
    PC will require DVI cable.

    VHS .......umm i wouldnt go down that road.

    this little lot is gonna set u back around £800+

    Personally i use Van-damme cables. there Very well made.
    there made to order. So make careful measurments of all lenghs required, As there priced by the metre.
