    never heard of that one, what ports dose it have around the back
    if you told us a brief discription of the ports maybe we could help
    hopefully you got some phono type plugs like the ones you use on an amp, or maybe its a VGA type plug like the one use on your graphics card on your PC, let us know:)

    later

    It has these

    Two scarts * six composite video phono inputs * six S-Video video inputs * one separate analogue RGB phono input * digital input mini centronics port * seven LR line inputs


    From this Site

    Don't know how old the review is but it says this is a £12,000 screen :eek:

    Wow it has more than enough connections to connect your gear

    well if you have sky didibox or freeview, or proberly Ntl BOX, that will have SCART onit, so all you need todo is order a scart lead from ether http://www.keene.co.uk or http://www.lektropacks.co.uk

    they cost around 30 quid for a decentish one that will serve you nicely.

    if you have anthor piece of hardware that dose`nt have scart, I will need to know what it dose have (what ports) to help you

    if you cant wait to boot the plasma up, I susgest you run as fast as your legs will carry you round to currys/ comet/ hughs etc
    and buy a scart off them


    I hope you are blown away buy your new toy, and let me know if your rich mate gives anything else away;)


    best regards

    You'll find that the lovely complement of inputs mentioned above are on the media box, not the screen. Your mate reckons you need a control lead because that is what would join the media box to the plasma screen. You would then connect everything to the media box. Unless the plasma itself has any other ports then i'm afraid it's useless.

    This is not the first i've heard of this by the way. I have spoken to several people who have purchased plasmas without the media box (usually cash out of a lorry in which case you deserve it) - in most cases they've been old Pioneer HDEs without tuners....

    If it is the media box that has all them connections, then youn will need to contact the company your friend brought it off and they will send you a replacement lead, many people damage them leads all the time, and get replacement leads sent out, or some people need a longer lead than is given so they can put it up on the wall etc

    you may well need to qoute your friends name etc when ordering it proberly to prevent what Liam said stolen goods
    good luck
