    Hi,

    I'm about to buy a plasma tv (the PW6) now as you know it has pretty much nothing but just the screen..

    anyway, im hearing this stuff about buying a tuner and all that, im quite a n00b here and I hardly know anything about it, but can't I just put it on my receiver (AVR130) en my satalite set or on my simple Philips DVD/receiver in-one thingy? If no, what does a tuner exactly do? I'm also reading that with a tuner u wont have loads of cables (can't think up the right word?) hanging out of the back of ur screen? How does this work?

    and second, do you have to buy boards to actually plug anything in? for example the TY-42TM6Y? Or which do I need? I need 1 scart, 1 DVI input (pc) and an input for my receiver (which one?).

    Anything else I need except wallmounting/stand?

    Any help would be great, thanks.

    I think you're main problem is that the HK AVR130 doesn't output component IIRR & you'd be better off replacing it with one that does so that you can do the following *:
    • AV Receiver to the plasma via component
    • DVD player to receiver via component
    • Tuner to receiver via whatever standard the tuner will output
    So the only terminal board you would need for the plasma would be the RCA component board.


    * Assuming you don't have the budget to buy all HDMI kit :p


    EDIT: What you could do is to buy the dual slot BNC component/S-Video/composite board & connect via S-Video & then upgrade the other kit to all component or HDMI as money allows.
