    Hi new to plasma tv but have taken the plunge and would like some advice on how best to connect it all up

    Equipment

    Plasma - Panny TH42PE50
    DVD recorder - Panny DMREH50
    Other - Amstrad Sky +

    Obviously the recorder to the tv will be via component, but what about the sky+ Do i run it through the DVD or connect direct to RBG on the TV ?

    All advice welcome

    Thanks in advance

    probably best going from the sky tv scart to dvdr and then, as you say, component to screen. This gives best results for recording as the other scart out on sky boxes is not RGB.

    Thanks for the swift reply, does this make the PQ better on screen as well as the recording ?

    And do i have to have the DVD recorder switched on or can it be left in standby like a vcr ?

    Cheers

    I think it has to be on, the PQ on screen will be about the same
