    I've seen a lot of praise posted about the Pany PW6. I've had a look at the Pany website and the PW6 appears to be a monitor only.

    How do you get the video signals into it. Is there a seperate AV box that can be purcahsed?

    Cheers,

    Nigel

    You can buy various input cards that you plug in the back, such as Scart, Component, DVI etc. You can have up to 3 cards but some can only go in certain slots. There is also a VGA input on the panel.

    You can buy a tuner which has all the sockets on the back and connects to the screen using 1 lead. Accoring to many on the site the tuner is not too good.

    Hope this helps

    For the price of the official tuner box, you could invest in a dedicated scaler.
    These have all the video inputs you need and will offer a far far better picture.
    Usual suspects in the scaler market are
    DVDO with their iScan HD
    Lumagen with a range starting at about £800
    Pixel Magic Systems with Crystalio (top of the range) or soon to be launched Plasma Enhancer (sub 1k).
    The latter is interesting because it is a proper 'tuner' replacement as it has front inputs, a TV tuner and I think a photo card reader all included.
    You could also look into using a HCPC (home cinema PC) there's a whole forum on here dedicated to it.
    There's a lot of reading ahead of you, but it'll be worth it.
    Cheers
    Alex
