    OK - now discovered that panny 7 is a pannel not a TV. Been looking at setting up decent home cinema but now think I need to decide on terminal boards for connection if I go down the panny 7 route.

    Been looking at Arcam (DVD79 and AVR 300) or denon (3910 and 3805) with SKY +.

    How would you connect his lot up, what terminal boards are required for the panny.

    would I connect everything to the amp with video to the pannel or video direct from dvd and sky +. Would want to keep the leads to the pannel at a minimum or is this a stupid question and perhaps I should look at the pioneer 435 or something else.

    If your AV amp supports video up conversion like the 3805 does you can connect all sources to it and then a component cable to the screen SO you need the component input board. If DVD is HDMI i suggest you go with the forthcoming HMDI board and use DVD Direct to panel and route audio to amp so you need one component board and one HDMI and 2 cables to screen (+power)

    Just to expand (a little) on Horny's reply.

    DVD to Plasma - HDMI to HDMI
    SKY+ to AV Receiver - SCART RGB to 3RCA YUV
    AV Receiver to Plasma - 3RCA YUV to 3BNC YUV

    You'll require the following:

    1 x SCART cable - RGB Only or Fully Wired
    1 x JS Technology RGB2YUV Converter
    1 x 3RCA to 3RCA YUV cable set
    1 x 3RCA to 3BNC YUV Cable set
    1 x HDMI to HDMI cable
    1 x TY-42TM6AB Component Video Terminal board
    1 x TY-FB7HM HDMI Terminal Board.

    If you have some Secondary sources that output Composite and S-Video then as Horny suggests the Video Up-Conversion in the AV Receiver makes life simple as you get everything connected via the one Component connection.

    If however you have any S-Video sources that you consider 'Primary' sources I'd consider leaving them un-converted and add an S-Video board to the Display.

    Best regards

    Joe

    hmm i was going to go with S-video from Sky+ to amp and let it upconvert but as Joe suggests for maximum quality the RGB>YUV converter is best and you can run a 5 core video cable to screen and have it terminated for component and S-video (Van damme mini 5 core or QED CX5CV is great for this.)

    Thanks guys - you know if arcam 300 supports video up conversion. Denon 3805 was my original choice but spoke to dealer how recons Arcam is better product.
