    Yes its done! :) i have orderd a Panasonic th-42pwd6bx from AV sales,
    this is whats coming on wednesday.

    TH-42PWD6bx (plus free Component Video (BNC) svhs, composit, board)
    Desk top stand
    JS RGB to VGA converter
    1m 3 RCA-3BNC component Van Damme Cable
    1m 15pin hd vga-15pin hd vga Van Damme cable

    DVD will go in as component,
    sky via RGB-JS tech box-vga imput,
    av amp will look after the sound.

    If i have read all the posts right, this should be the best conection/supplier and screen options, thanks to everyone here what a minefield it is! (Richer sounds just made it worse) so just one thing, i know to take it out of dynamic mode and cut down the brightness but can anyone help a bit more with the settings? (dos and donts)

    so is their stock levels and often they havent a clue, useless demo facilities and staff either competely ignore you or try and sell you something else... go there for a PW6 and they will try and sell you a DAEWOO tuner to go with it.......................

    I'd go along with that. Popped in there yesterday and the guy didnt seem to know what he was talking about. When I mentioned the Panny he pretty much poo pooed it. Any potential of sale disappeared from that point on

    Just a thought but wouldnt a freeview box be a better option then a TV Tuner? After all, RF is subject to ghosting and all sorts. Channel 5 is stilll the pits. At least with freeview you would get a decent picture. Richer Sounds could flog you one for £25 :D

    but because they cant supply terminal boards (wel they sometimes can supply the scart one) they offer you this excellent Daewoo tuner that connects to the VGA input for £99 intead of wasting £150 on a scart board.......which is actually the most useless bit of kit i have seen for a long time..........the fact that with an upscalng amp connected to the VGA input on a PWD6via component gives you an ecellent package escapes them RS are not a quality retailer much of what they sell is cheap items with little performance (when they get decent kit they dont know what to do with it)

    garbon,

    Why don't you daisy-chain your DVD through the Sky box rather than shell out for a SCART switcher?

    Send a private message to Piero Milani (on this forum), he'll sort you out with DVE - remember to state PAL.
