    Dad asked me today whether he should get a standard plasma tv with all the connections etc on the tv or buy a pdp

    I said a PDP because it would mean he could have 2 wires running up to the tv (power and the media control box) so it would be easy to wall mount and plug everything else in the mcb, thus making it easier to swithc hardware etc...however there's a few things not sure about

    what type of cable runs from the mcb to the pdp? would this still allow 1080p (if had an hdmi plugged into the mcb)?

    are pdp's more expensive?

    what ones are generally (pdp or tv) better quality?

    Panel. And yes, 1080p would be fine, as long as the panel can accept it. Are you thinking of a generic video processor or Pioneer specific here?

    A video processor that can be used by any screen & just spits out HDMI. As far as I know, media boxes like the Pioneer one are specific to that screen, or at least, I always thought so but you've got me thinking now... maybe that's not true.

    Fujitsu, Panny or Pioneer would definitely be the options.

    bit confused...just thought you would plug everything into the mcb and then one lead from the mcb to the panel would sort everything out

    Er, yeah - what did I say that contradicts that?

    All I'm saying is I don't know if you can buy "MCBs" that are generic & work on any panel. Maybe you can?

    like even if its a tv as opposed to a pdp you can still buy an mcb and plug everything into that?
