    Hello

    Would any of you happen to know which terminal board I would need to have installed for a HDMI to DVI-D connection in the Panny PWD6 + is this the HDCP? compliant screen, ie can I get maximum resolution, no. of lines?

    I have the new Pio 868avi-s but don't really have the cash for the matching Pio 434HDE so I think (info picked up on the DVD forum) I can hook this to the Panny via a HDMI to DVI-D lead?

    I've got the manual (PWD6) infront of me & it doesn't make alot of sense.

    I'm sure I need a terminal that will allow for a 1125(1080)/60i signal? (is this the best resolution?, ie 1080 lines, like the expensive Pio 434HDE?

    The RGB terminal boad, TY-42TM6D (DigitalW/HDCP) looks like the fella but I'm not too sure if this will give the best quality picture Vs the PC Input, TY-42TM6P/G ?

    Nexnix do quote the TY-42TM6D as the RGB DVI Digital Terminal Board

    I'm a bit lost here, any help appreciated? - Panny pdf below

    Cheers

    Hello Matthew

    Your on the right track!

    You will require:
    1 x TH-42PWD6BX Display
    1 x TY-42TM6DB DVI input card
    1 x HDMI to DVI cable*

    You'll need to 'look' carefully (once you get the system hooked up) at what output resolutions from the DV-868AVi (with its on-board scaler) works best with the signals the Panasonic DVI card accepts; 1125(1080)60i looks like one possibility (but may not be the best).

    Best regards

    Joe

    *Molex work well over short distances (up to 5m) and BetterCables Display Magic are worth the extra if you want a step up from Molex!

    Joe & Ryan,

    Thanks very much for the advice, I think I'm pritty much there now, it's been a long road, Joe - you may remember me pestering you about 4 or 5 months ago, once again thanks for your patience.

    The cables you mentioned, are they easy to find, the only HDMI to DVI cable I've seen was approx. £170 for a 2 metre run?

    Better the get the old cheque book out.

    many thanks

    Matt:D

    Hello Matt

    I keep on stubbing my toe on the HDMI cable box that's under my desk :)

    Joe

    PS I can understand the claims for the cable you linked too over long lengths but doubt it does adds/subtracts much over 1.0m - maybe I'll ask to see one and try it out!
