Hello to a fascinating forum full of knowledgable people which I have used to govern recent purchases - and no prima donnas... Newbie 'connections' question here - advice gratefully received. I know this is a bit verbose for my first post - but I understand that clarity is always welcome on this forum. I have a Yamaha RXV640RDS receiver, which serves me very well. Connected to my ageing 2-SCART 4x3 29" Sony are the following:- An early Pace DVB single-scart decoder (yes I know it's rubbish, but I'm waiting for 5.1 developments in this area) A Panasonic video (fine) Toshiba SD-340E player Currently the Pace connects via the Video into the first Sony SCART (16:9 switching doesn't work so I watch in letterbox mode) and the Toshiba get the other SCART (16:9 anamorphic works). I'm looking to upgrade the TV to a Panasonic TH42PWD6BX plasma but am confused about the 'input boards' issue with the PWD6. Q1. I would like to connect the Tosh via Component, and would like at least 2 distinct SCARTS for the Freeview box and Video. What basic connectivity does the PWD6 come with - and what board would I best be advised to get (apparently AV-SALES includes one with a purchase)? Q2. I have ignored the various video connection possibilities offered by the RXV640, which quite frankly confused the hell out of me - would these help here to simplify the issues? It has no SCART inputs so how would the Pace/Video connect in? Just wondering. Q3 I want the Panasonic to be audible without going though an Amp - do speakers generally come with this model? Many Thanks, Crispin. On an unrelated note - does anyone know if/when 5.1 sound will come over Freeview? I've noticed some newer decoders come with a digital out but I presume at the moment this is of little practical use.
