    i have just purchased a panasonic PWD6 and wish to connect both my (bog standard) sky box and DAV SR2 picture to it please help the panny does not have a scart facility and the DAV has only one output which is a scart , I am looking for the cheapest way to connect bareing in mind the S-VID tends to overide everything i try to do. :lease:

    well you could go rgb to vga for the sky box.....not sure about cheapest option but JS rgb to vga is probably the best affordable option.

    Ok mate, check this link out....takes scart lead in from your sky box and has a vga cable out to your pc input on the plasma (need cables seperately) not worth spending a fortune on the vga cable (same cable as connects monitor to pc graphics card)

    the panny can have 2 scart boards fitted into the empty bays on the underside. (covered with silver blankig plates) this is simplest option.

    sorry misread original, thought it did have a scart on the panny....so options are as Horny says get 2 scart boards or get one and use the pc input as suggested above.

    these SONT DAV system are a real pain in the ARSE!!!!! Can is uggest you scrap it? get a pioneer VSXC301/402 DVD575 and conton CD1 speakers (the Pio AMP can act as Video hub for 3 scart sources and switch them to a single input in Plasma Cost wise Canton CD1 are £240 from forum powerbuy, Pio DVD575 is £99 from RS, Pio AMP 301 £140 from RS 402 approx £200.... so for under £500 (scart6s for panny are £130 from RS which i guess is where you bought it) so spend an extra £350 and get a new DVD player DIvx and all sorts a new AMP and speakers that will deystroy the SONY and a remote that wil operate all the functions! (AMP remote controls DVD player and can control plasma on/off etc) sell the DAV for £100+ costs you £250 for a full upgrade!!!!!

    EDIT all available in black or silver too so it looks nice!
