    Hi All,

    Well I think I have decided to go and buy the PW6 forom RS but have a few questions on how I can hook all my kit up to it. I feel I have learnt loads just from reading this forum but still have a lot to learn!!

    I know I can get a JS Scart to VGA converter but I want to know if I can use my surround sound amp to go through and then connect this to the VGA connection on the PW6.

    I have a Sony HT-DDW840 surround sound amp. looking at it, it has Video in and 2 Audio in's for each item (DVD, Video2, Video2 etc) and then it has a 'Monitor' Video Out - I guess this is the bit that I need to conect to the Plasma but its just a single connector not a scart so how would this go to the VGA connector?

    It does also have, in a section marked 'Digital', an Optical Video 2 in? and a DVD in Coaxial?

    I really need to know if i can route my kit (Sky +, DVD, and console) through this to the VGA connector on the PW6.

    Thanks in advance.

    Mark

    that sounds like just a composite out from your amp....you would be better going sky+ to vga via the js converter, you could run the console through tehvcr scart on sky+, but would recommend component board for the dvd player assuming it can output component.....the other optical and digital inputs sound like audio only..

    I have just done a few tests using my existing TV and I can run the DVD and console through the Amp no problem using the component connections.

    As for SKY + I think you are right, I will get the JS converter.

    So to connect the Amp to the Plasma I need a Component board? Its just a single Video out cable so I guess I would not use the Audio ins on the component board?

    Shame really would have liked to get it all running through my amp! Just can't see a way of connecting the sky+ video to the amp (sound is coming from the optical connection). And then of course how would the amp connect to the VGA connection on the PW6.

    So I guess I need:
    PW6
    JS Converter for Sky +
    Component board for comnnecting the Amp.

    Seem OK - thanks mep
