am interested in buying a panasonic plasma, what else would i need to buy to connect up my dvd via component & my cable digi box via scart which is how they are wired up at the moment, also once having bought said equipment, is it diffcult to set up, as i have limited knowledge,
With the DVD player being connected with component, all you need is a set of component video leads - quite easy. Connecting up the Digibox requires an interface, such as the RGB to Plasma VGA unit. This will connect via SCART from the Digibox, in to the unit, and back out using a VGA (PC Monitor) lead. Simple!

Sorry Adrian, you need RGB before my boxes will do anything! Other than giving you a black picture that is!
Video and Laserdiscs are both composite based. Although some laserdiscs did have RGB or S-Video out, this was more of a trick than the raw data being in that format. So, it may be best to give the screen pure composite and let the modern electronics in the screen do the cleaning up.
Sorry, can't comment on new product development. New policy due to too many other companies bringing out imitations.
