    Im looking to replace my tv ( a Panasonic 24” crt ) with a nice plasma tv, the two that have court my eye is the ‘Pioneer PDP-434HDE’ & ‘Panasonic TH-42PHD6 ( with DVI-D Terminal Board added )’.

    Im after some advice as to which one ( or even another screen ) would suite my needs, I want to connect my current dvd player ( a Panasonic dvd-rv32 Multi-Region, I will upgrade after a month or so for something a bit better ), a VCR, my Sky Digital box, & a computer ( with a DVI output ).

    All comments / recommendations gratefully received

    Hi stuart,

    How about a Pioneer 434HDE with an 868AVi player connected by HDMI? I don't think you'd go far wrong with that combination. See www.avland.co.uk for more info on them.

    Don't forget there's only the 1 HDMI input, and it's shared with YUV AAAGH! PC via DVI will conflict with 868 DVD, and I am not clear about what happens when you have YUV and HDMI/DVI connected at the same time, as they are both input 3. It could be that in this case the Panny will be the better bet. You could have a dvi card, and a component video card, get a good progressive scan DVD, and if you needed a second tuner and found the vcr inadequate (I expect you would) you could perhaps look at a Pace twin freeview box.
