    Just bought one myself and thought it might be a good idea to get some tips on connections coz I did the usual amateur thing a bought one with a scart board.

    Well, anyway after reading umpteen threads on the subject you notice that most people seem own or be getting one!

    I toyed with the idea of going for a higher res screen but figured it would spend most of its time on sky anyway.

    Just thought I'd post that.

    Also, Whats the best all-in-one remote I can get to controll my AV setup including the plasma, sony receiver/amp, sony DVD player, Telewest digibox, lights.. etc.

    Any other setup tips?

    i am getting one too! Best remote in most peoples mind is the pronto or a derivative. Personally i like the look of the meridian msr+.

    As far as other tips..... if you dont have avia or dve..... get a copy so you can calibrate properly :)

    For Calibration I have a DVD called DVD GOLD.

    Its mainly used for sound purposes, but it can be handy for viewing issues.

    Where can I pick up avia or dve and how much is it?

    Welcome to the 42PWD6 club - it is indeed a mighty fine plasma.
    There's loads of screen setting advice in this forum - just do a search and take it from there. If you have a DVD with component output, get either a lektropak cable (for about 30 quid) and feed this via the VGA input.
