Hi all. Firstly, a big thank you to all those posting helpful information. I've lurked here for a long while, and now that I'm about to purchase my first Plasma, I'm happy to be in such company. I'm about to replace a 12-year-old 25" sony CRT (which still has a superb picture), and I'm looking to go with the following: Panny PW6 (obviously !) 3xComponent input modules (probably BNC for cost and fixing) JS RGB=>Component box Various interconnects. I'll be running my DVD straight through component, and the same with the XBox once I get a HD pack (can't find them in stock anywhere yet). I have a telewest box, going into TiVo via Scart, and I plan to take TiVo via the JS box into the other component input. Any additional Scart 'inputs' will go through a switcher into the same box (ie gamecube). A few questions I still have: Is there any reason than interconnects don't generally come in really short lengths ? I notice the powerbuys handmade section, and may order some from there, as all my components are very close to each other. Is component the best way to go ? I could instead go with the RGB->VGA but I don't have a *need* to do this if component will be better (or as good). Is there anything I've missed ? All audio will be going digitally (wherever possible) into my existing amp and speakers. Oh, and unless i find some big reason, I'll be going for this from AV-Sales next week - SWMBO has given agreement. Thanks for any help. Michael.
