    Hi,

    I'm thinking about buying a 42" plasma TV to replace my standard and rather bulky 32" widescreen and have been looking on the net for a good plasma TV for under £3000

    I've seen loads of good positive reviews for the Panasonic TH-42PDW6UY TV but i cant seem to find anywhere in the uk which sells it (i think it's because its a US model?)

    can anyone tell me if i can buy the same model in uk under a different name or a plasma tv that is just as good for the same price? (would like built in speaker if possible though.)

    thanx :)

    In the uk it is called the TH-42PWD6BX.

    Check out the banner for AV-Sales (or look in the special offers forum http://www.avforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=126652) otherwise check out www.av-sales.co.uk, www.nexnix.co.uk or www.tmfsolutions.co.uk

    You can get one now for about £2100 inc wall mount and 1 video input board. Av-Sales would be my recommended choice :smashin:

    Great screen btw, but then I am a biased owner :)

    No, you don't need the tuner...it also degrades the picture anyhow...

    Have a chat with AV-Sales about the best connections, but options are:

    DVD => component out into component input or RGB scart output into scart input

    Sky => RGB scart output into scart input or RGB scart output into VGA port using JS Tech RGB2VGA converter

    Xbox => component output into component input

    As you will have two component sources, you will either needs to switch them via your AV amp or get a YUV switch.

    JJ

    P.S. Search the forum as "how to connect X with a PW6 or PWD6..." is quite a common question now ;)
