    Hi Guys, first off, as you can tell I'm new to this forum and to the whole world of AV goodness and this forum is a great resource for people like me.

    Anyways, like most of you I've caught the itch to buy a plasma/av receiver/speaker package I’ve got my list down to the following items

    Panasonic PW6/PW7
    Sony STR-DB795
    Toshiba SD-340E
    Morduant-Short Genie

    Into the AV, I'll be connecting my SKY+ and xbox.

    I want to go for a clean install, concealing all wires where possible, so I thought that I would buy the component socket module for the plasma TV so I would have just one cable running from the AV to the plasma.

    BUT, the more I read about ppl who have this plasma, they have chosen the JS RGB to VGA converter box to connect the SKY+. Is there a particular reason for this? Will the way I want to configure it (with just the one component cable running from the AV to the Plasma) not give as good a picture?

    Should I be looking at different plasma’s in order to accomplish what I am after?

    Thoughts/Comments are greatly appreciated by this n00b!

    :)

    to do what you want to do i suggest you look at an AV reciever that has video upscaling built in, this will allow you to run 1 cable (reconmend you run a couple of others for future uses as well HDMI and VGA +S-video)


    Also reconmend you consider http://www.progressive-av.com/flat_screens/fujitsu_p42vha30.htm as an alternative to the panny.
    and cosider the denon 2805 reciever which has video upconnversion allowing S-video (sky+) to be fed into amp and output as component to the screen: http://www.creative-audio.co.uk/HCS_DEN2805_KHT2005.htm
