    I have tried searching for this, but can't find the answer.

    Did I read that Panasonics 'Just' mode, isn't available when you are using one of the inputs.

    I have a feeling that it was the VGA input.. if this is the case, then I am concered, as I would want to connect my STB (Sky) to it, via an RGB-VGA converter. But, as Sky outputs a lot of different aspect ratios, 'Just' mode would be needed to ge the best display of a 4:3 image onto 16:9.

    Exactly.. I want Component for the DVD player!

    With DVD, "just" mode will never be used as everything will be in Widescreen.

    Sky is the input which needs the 'just mode'!

    With the right A/V amplifier, you can switch component video too. So you can have your DVD player and Component converter connected via the amp to your screen.

    VGA gives you a very sharp and clear picture, but withouth the Just mode. Component is slightly softer (slightly), but does allow the Just mode. But you can route component through some A/V amps too. There's advantages to each route.

    All the best,

    John.
