Ok, now I am more confused. Sorry guys, I am new to this, so it is taking time.....ha ha! The Panny has a component, s-video and composite. If I connect RGB to the component, then I need to also connect the composite to provide a sync. But the problem with this is that it disables the s-video. That is not so bad, provided I don't need another input to the plasma. But when I get my dvd with component output, I will naturally want to use the component input on the plasma. The sky box can sod off to the s-video ( assuming i buy the box to convert) . But I guess that normally the component to component is five wire not six?? In other words it frees up the composite to allow the s-video to work?? How does everyone else do this? I mean without buying the tuner?
