    Hello all i have asked this question under other headers but had so many opinions i just want to get the best way then go for it!

    What i am looking to do is connect a pw6 wall mounted to a sony dav sa30 and pace sky + box. i have listed the specs for the 2 items below. As i am looking to create a minimalistic look i want to have the sky + and dav sa30 on the opposite wall.. this will involve chasing out the wall below the PW6 then running what ever cable i go for through a 12mm hole in a wall for about 8 meters then back in through another 12mm hole. The reason I am looking to go through the wall is to completley hide the cables cos my chick hates them and this is one of the conditions of being allowed to buy a plasma in the first place as in " think of how much room it will save and no more cables !" oooo rrrr so if you guys can give me one last opinion before i shed out 2k plus cables and converters it would be greatly appriciated.. getting rid of my bird is not an option ! :clap:

    I'am new here and I'm going to buy PW6. My problem is that which videoboard should I buy with that plasma.

    I have conncted my satellite receiver, digital receiver and DVD-player to my amplifier with s-video (I use scart-module). Now from my amplifier goes s-video (scart-module) to my TV and picture is OK (and now I can change channels using my amplifiers remote. I choose different inputs coming to amplifier).

    Should I do same with my plasma?

    My DVD-player have component output and I have possibility to connect that output to my amplifier and from amplifier to plasma.

    Or should I buy NEC 42VP4 including very many connections?

    (Sorry my bad english, my own language is finnish).

    One way to connect everything would be as follows:

    1) DAV RGB SCART output to Sky+ VCR A/V SCART input using an RGB SCART likethis.

    2) Sky+ TV/AV SCART output to SCART input of a RGB2VGA converter using another RGB SCART.

    3) RGB2VGA converter VGA output to PW6 VGA input using a VGA cable - this is the only cable you will need to run to your plasma, and you won't need to buy a video board for the plasma, either.

    So, you would need the following:
    1 X RGB2VGA converter
    1 X VGA cable

    This is pretty much how I connected up my DVD player & Sky+ box to my PWD6, except I went Sky->DVD->RGB2VGA->Plasma as my DVD player has 2 SCART sockets, whereas it doesn't look like your DAV does.
