    Here's the equipment i'm trying to connect for a friend:

    o Sky box with SCART output
    o VCR with SCART output
    o Playstation 2 with out-of-the-box cable (composite or SCART video o adaptor without pin-8 switching)
    o XBox with out-of-the-box cable (composite or SCART video adaptor without pin-8 switching)
    o Sony DAV-S400 DVD player and surround system - has a composite video output for the DVD signal

    This will all be going into an unpurchased Panasonic TH-42PW7B screen (so not selected connection boards yet).

    Question is, minimising cable runs to the plasma (all other kit together), what's the optimum cabling? I've tried using a SCART switcher (one that uses pin 8) and this obviously doesn't work with the consoles or the DVD signal...

    Cheers,

    Keith
