    Dear all this is my 1st post - it has taken up most of my time reading through all the plasma threads :D

    I have finally opted for the TH-42PW6B in silver plus the TY-ST42PA20 'rounded' stand and a Quintro scart switcher (I also looked at the Hitach 42PD3000, but was put off slightly by the Sky picture). I have the following equiment:

    Sony DVP-S725D DVD player with Component output
    Sony Sky Digibox
    Sony VCR
    Sega Dreamcast with RGB scart
    PC with VGA, S-video & DVI out

    I suppose my questions are:

    Is the Quintro the correct method for connecting this all up (the panel comes with the scart terminal board).

    Any ideas on connecting the PC for best picture/resolution?

    Will Widescreen and Aspect switching work through the quintro?

    Should I consider connecting my DVD to the panel using component (to the VGA slot? to a Component terminal board?)

    Any advice re getting best Sky picture

    Are there optimum settings to configure the panel with (Contrast, Brightness etc).

    What/How should I check for once delivered (dead pixels etc).

    Are any 'burn-in' routines required?

    Any thoughts/observations would be very welcome indeed.

    Many thanks in Advance.....

    GreenBhoy,

    welcome to the plasma world. you will find answers to all your questions by searching these forums.

    Quintro switch box has very flimsy sockets and yes it will allow you auto aspect ratio change, although scart is not the best connection option for PW6. As to whether it makes the image any worse, I didn't notice any reduction in quality but it's an extra loop in the system and it does not make it better.
