    hi if you give us a little more info i`m sure someone will put you in right dirrection

    what ntl box? digital
    what dvd player? does it have component outputs?
    do you have any speakers or amp at moment?
    are you planning on connecting a computer?
    what video?svhs or vhs

    if you have a little search round the plasma threads you will find lots of info on this subject.

    here is my setup

    toshiba plasma/panasonic clone

    ntl digital > rgb to vga box> vga imput on plasma www.rgbtosvideo.com
    philips 962 dvd player > component imputs on plasma
    dont have a video but if i did i would connect it to the composite imput on plasma

    all my audio go to a amp

    hope this helps

    Ok well i dont yet have a amp or seperate speakers
    yet but i have a panasonic dvd player which has scart and rgb output and possible s video?
    the vid is also panasonic and is a s-vhs and i will be connecting the pc to the plasma at some point.
    how do you connect ntl to amp after you use that rgb to vga convert??

    my ntl box has audio outputs but if yours dont i suppose a scart with audio breakout would do the trick .

    you said you have no amp if thats the case and budget(wife) will allow go for a denon 3803 with component imputs and out,
    s.video up conversion to component. will allow you to have less cables to screen. go for a rgb to component instead of vga that will allow you to keap the vga for computer use.

    as for speakers if i had the cash i think some gallo micro or the bigger ones , cant remember name , see power buy threads

    and maybe a little research and demoing before purchase of all goods

    :D :D :D

    ha,ha,ha thnaxs for the replies and digs guys!!!
    well just to clear it up it was my rather slow witted house mate who has far to much money than sense who bought the plasma b4 doing the research!!
    which is what my job is now to do!!!
    so summary
    ntl rgb to component > plasma (as well as connect to amp)
    vhs > composite to plasma
    dvd s video to plasma
    and all audio through an amp

    does that sound as though it would work???

    if you can go for the denon 3803 you can connect your ntl/ dvd/ video and all audio have them switch at same time and it has a lip sync adjust.

    right when you change the imput on the plasma ie goes from s-video > rgb> component> pc> that will change the source from ntl > video> dvd> pc . there just examples. that will change the picture as the audio is not attached to the plasma in anyway you will need if just using any amp to switch that over in same way ie from ntl > dvd> video >pc .

    but the denon3803 as all audio and picture sorces pass through it will do it in one press of button

    i sound like a denon sales person.

    ps maybe if you tell us your budget for amp / speakers / dont forget good cables are expensive / rgb converter

    some one can maybe answer bettter than me

    Also i've been looking around at amps and i dont think i can afford the 3803 denon as £300 on a amp is my limit i think so
    i was looking at the pioneer VSX-C550-S but once again im not to hot on inputs and outputs so i dont know if it'll do the job???

    a denon 3803 would be nice but i cant afford one yet either. your wiring looks fine to get good quality scarts and component leads.

    do you know what series model your panny is as some of the earlier ones you could not use the s-video and composite at same time( you couls only plug in to one or the other) but fixed on later models
