    You could do worse than:

    SKY RGB SCART out > JS Technology RGB2YUV converter > YUV input 02 on AVR3802.

    FMJ DV27 YUV out > YUV 01 on AVR3802.

    AVR3802 YUV out > YUV in on Panasonic display.

    If you dont want to convert the RGB out from your Digibox to YUV and you are not planning on using a PC in your system you could use an RGB2VGA converter for the Digibox and connect the FMJ DV27 direct to the YUV inputs on the display.

    Best regards

    A variation of this is justing running RGB into the YUV input 02 of your receiver and routing the composite sync directly to your plasma. I can't see why this shouldn't work, but you would then have to manually change from YUV to RGB when you change source. It will save you the converter box.

    And you would also loose the ability to input S-Video to the display!

    Best regards

    I don't disagree Jo but you can have S-VHS if you have an AV amp that switches it. Sync for RGB works just as well off that. For your RGB input, you just need the Y signal so a normal video output will do connected to an S-VHS plug.

    Pin 1: Luminance Ground
    Pin 2: Chrominance Ground (not required for RGB Sync)
    Pin 3: Luminance or Intensity (Y)
    Pin 4: Chrominance or Colour (C) (not required for RGB Sync)

    It certainly works for me with superb results but your experience is much greater than mine.
