    Just wondering, is it possible to do away with the media receiver and connect sources directly to the plasma display from a scaler - Lumagen or IScan or similar with DVI out. The display has what appears to be a DVI input. Is this a standard DVI is the question I guess.

    Don't know if the DVI input to the screen is standard or not, and I don't fancy risking a connection to see!

    If this does work then wouldn't it effectively be a better looking, but expensive, MXE1 panel?

    Perhaps some of the experts on here will know the answer

    I do not believe this is possible without some serious hacking of the comms link between the two boxes. The dealers I know who have tried it have all failed. I have hear a tale in the industry of one dealer who cut open the comms link and managed to do some patching of cable to facilitate it but it sounds unlikely to me....
