    i am new here so firstly hi to all :)

    i have just ordered a panasonic plasma and need help with the connections needed to set up my system!

    i have connected my xbox via svhs through a audio/video reciever which i think should be ok!

    dvd player will also go via svhs through my audio/video reciever which seems ok!

    sattalite seems to be the hardest to connect! i have a rgb scart output which i have converted to svhs with a small junction convertor! picture doesnt seem to be too good at all!

    it would be gr8 if i could route all cables through my video/audio reciever and send just one svhs cable to my plasma but at the end of the day picture quality is my priority

    i would like any help on all 3 subjects plzz. thx

    Try and use VGA/RGB/Component if possible.

    Has your DVD player got SCART/Component?

    XBox can use RGB and possibly Component as well. Sky would be best with RGB.

    dvd and xbox through your amp/reciever will be fine i would go with a rgb to vga from www.rgbtosvideo.com for best results and cracking picture that will leave the component imputs spare for when you upgrade your dvd player

    DVD to Plasma- with SCART RGB lead.

    Sat Box to DVD player's SCART input (if it has one)

    yes rgb to vga straight into vga on plasma you could also get a scart 3 in 1 out and plug what ever rgb scarts you have into that then one into the vga box,

    the s-video will be ok for dvd but not as good as rgb scart or component,

    i can get a verygood picture through s-video but not as good as component but very watchable.
