Hi guys not had much success recently enlisting help on this site so I am hoping for more luck this time. With my equipment as listed below with component connections going from the Topfield and the DVD recorder to the Panasonic receiver inputs and then from the monitor component out of the receiver to the plasma I am unable to get the receiver on-screen-display to work. The manual says a connection is required from monitor out but doesnt say it cant be component. Am I right in thinking that it will only work with an output in composite and not component ? as I can think of no other reason. If thats the case its a real pain with the plasma only having composite inputs by the way of scart is going to mean yet another lead to be fed through an already crowded route. Second question is that with my receiver if I used a HDMI lead from it to the plasma would the signals being sent to the receiver from component inputs and optical audio then be transmitted via the HDMI enabling me to do away with the component to the plasma ? or is it as I suspect just a switching facility that will only output on HDMI what is input on HDMI ? I would really appreciate any input on this. Thanks.
