    Hiya

    I recently aquired a TH-42PWD3 for a bit of a bargain (£500). Im absolutely blown away by it. Stunning picture. Only problem is the inputs. I want to connect a DVD player, and VCR.

    My current DVD player only has SVideo and composite, and my VCR only has composite. So i cant have both connected at the same time as both need to connect to the AV Input.

    To solve this im thinking of treating myself to a Panasonic S75 DVD player with component output. Will i be able to plug this directly into the plasma's component inputs? I read somewhere about it not accepting PAL input on component. Is this the case? Couldnt see this restriction mentioned in the manual, so im hoping all will be fine.

    Any help much appreciated.

    I can't say for sure about the Panny 3 series, but I have got a Panny 4 series and have my DVD connected via component and it works fine for both NTSC & PAL.

    The 3 series will only take PAL progressive in RGB and not component.

    Hi Andy,

    The Panasonic S75 would be fine through the plasma's component input as it only outputs NTSC signals in progressive. The plasma's own de-interlacer would handle the interlaced PAL signals. Hope this helps.
