    Difficult decision made as to Plasma purchase... A Panny 6 series from Nexnix or AV-Sales. My only question is how best to connect a freeview box (for normal TV).

    Is it through a fitted SCART or through the VGA port using a JS Converter?

    In addition in terms of ease of use is there any real difference?

    Cheers for any help anyone can give..

    In terms of ease of use/functionality no difference. (except widescreen switching, which is iffy on scart anyway) Most would agree the scart is, like almost all plasmas, the PW6's weakness, and JS is a noticeable picture upgrade.

    Another option is the netgem freeview box which outputs (interlaced, I think) component (via Scart). I can't tell you whether it is better or worse than other options, but it allows switching through receivers that support that function.

    Customer feedback has indicated that you get a sharper picture going via the RGB to Plasma VGA unit. Edges are much better defined, and not fuzzy.

    All the best,

    Would this be better than the component board as I have scart and not sure whether to go for the vga converter or a YUV converter?

    Generally we prefer the VGA box for freeview/cable/sky, but if you have a AV amp that can switch component video, the convenience of the YUV box would outweigh easily any trivial preference picture wise. They will both give excellent results.

    I humbly disagree with those that prefer the VGA connection. Using this input you lose control over the level of colour and the benefit of having a small increase in picture clarity is offset by the high colour saturation you have to endure on some programmes.

    Fair enough, valid points. The picture clarity does it for most though.
