    I asked this question in another thread but got no reply, I wonder if someone could help me here

    I have decided to order the 42VM5 today so it will be with me some time tomorrow (Friday 7\1\05)

    Can anyone help with the best way to connect I have the following

    SKY+
    Cyberhome DVD
    XBOX

    Currently

    DVD --> SCART --> SKY+ --> SCART --> TV
    XBOX --> SCART --> TV

    The NEC 42VM5 has the following connections,

    Input Signals Video: - Composite/S; DTV: Y,Pb(Cb),Pr(Cr); RGB; PC

    Input terminal RGB
    - RGB1 Mini D-Sub15pin x 1
    - RGB2 BNC (R,G,B,H/CS,V) x 1
    - RGB3 DVI-D 24pin x 1

    Input Terminal Video
    - Video 1 BNC 1pin (Composite Video input)
    - Video 2 RCA 1pin (Composite Video input)
    - Video 3 S-Video input: DIN 4-pin x 1

    Input Terminal HD/DVD/DTV
    - DVD1 / HD1 = RCA-pin (Y, PB[CB], PR[CR]) x 1
    - DVD2 / HD2 = BNC (Y, PB[CB], PR[CR]) x 1
    - DVD3 / HD3 = DVI-D 24-pin x 1

    I was thinking

    DVD --> SCART --> SKY+ --> SCART --> PLASMA RGB2 BNC
    XBOX --> SCART --> PLASMA DVD1 / HD1 RCA-pin

    Does this make sense? I'm a beginner at this so please feel free to condemn

    The attached image is of a XM3 but the layout is the same as the VR\M\5 :zonked:

    RGB signal from scart can only be connected to DVD2 (BNC) input, but not to DVD1 (RCA). The other possibility to input RGB from scart is to RGB1 (D-Sub). I guess, you will need an adaptor for that. Doesn't your X-Box have component output? In this case you can connect it to DVD1 (RCA) input.

    it might be better if you get a RGB-component converter or the RGB-VGA converter (both from JS tech) so you only have one cable going to the plasma

    im assuming you're getting a scart-BNC and a scart-component cable to connect to RGB2 and HD1 respectively, im not sure if it's gonna work, most likely not

    i maybe wrong though, let's wait for the experts :)

    Thanks for your reply guys

    I want to leave the D-SUB for connecting my laptop and in near future a PC to for VID capture

    My XBOX does have component and I have some cheap leads that I am going to try out first

    One thing that the list of connections does not make clear is that the RGB2 & DVD2 are the same connection the same is true for RGB3 & DVD3

    So would the best connection be to put,

    XBOX via XBOX Connector direct to DVD1 \ HD1-RCA
    SKY+ via RGB SCART direct to RGB2 BNC\DVD2 \ HD2-BNC

    Thanks again

    Yes RGB2/DVD2/HD2 is one connection (BNC) and RGB3/DVD3/HD3 is the other connection (DVI).

    If the XBOX Connector outputs component then yes, it'll work.
