    Bought Panny Pv500 about a week ago, with table top stand and glass stand (didn't like the Panasonic cabinet stand), well happy with PQ and watching DVD's and Sky.
    I've got a very annoying problem however, when connected via Scart to the sky box i get faint background noises to the speakers, listened very closely and established that you can hear the sound from the analogue channel tuned in last. If you change analogue to a channel in the middle of nowhere you can hear the 'white noise' from the not properly tuned channel, which is even more annoying, same happens when you take the antenna cable out !!
    DVD recorder connected via component is fine, also Amp via component.
    My guess would be that there is one or more Pins on the scart cable that need disabling, but which ones........
    Anybody ever had this problem or knows which Pins to disable?
    help much appreciated as noise drives me up the wall once discovered that it is there.

    possibly, will check that.
    The one that goes from the DVD Recorder into the Panny is a gold plated Monster, but the one that connects sky box to DVD Recorder is just a simple one that came with the DMRe, will try the gold scart from the x-box and swap 'em around.

    looks like it was the scart lead causing the noises, because it was connected in such an angel, that it partially came out of the scart socket thus not making contact with all the pins, solved after a bit of cable tidying, thanks for pointing me to the cable longy.
