    This may seem like a lame question to many of you, but is there a way I can hook up the coaxial cable from my cable box to my Panasonic plasma, (7UY)? It doesn't have a coax input. I'm using the component cable output for another TV.
    Thanx

    I think I am right in saying that the 7UY is a display monitor, in other words it does not have any tuners on board so you cannot feed it with a conventional co-ax aerial cable. The specs I have seen do not have Scart sockets either. I know that the specification of panels vary from one country to another so yours might be different.

    Hi

    It would be an outrage to feed it with RF anyway if you have digital cable.

    Your best bet would be to get a component video splitter so you can run both devices that way.

    Regards,

    Beat me to it steve, the splitter is the way to go. You can use the RF if you use a TV tuner of some sort, a VCR perhaps. I reckon the splitter is the cheap way as well as the right way.
