    My father is looking into the Panny pw7 but is confused (as am I :blush: ) as to the best way to connect everything to the screen (preferably with only one connection to the screen).

    Having tried a lot of searching here I've come up with the following

    Sky+ > AVR200 using s-video
    DV88+ > AVR200 using component video.
    AVR200 > pw7 using component video terminal board.

    Is that the best way of connecting the above two with Sky+ box?

    The sky+ box has vga/s-video/composite out.

    Any help will be greatly appreciated. :)

    what you need is a JS RGB > YUV converter into AMP and then conect component from amp to screen
    PS would be first SKY+ box with VGA that i have heard off, RGB yes, S-video yes (modified for SDi yes)

    HD, knew you would come up with somethin'

    Would it be better PQ wise, in your opinion, if a converter is needed, to go

    Sky+ > JS rgb scart to vga > pw7 (as seen in many threads here)
    DV88+ > pw7 using component video. (and component board)

    or should I just do as you command.

    I presume the above removes component switching (if AVR200 supports it)

    btw SKY+ is this one http://www.amstrad.com/drx180.html and has an R232 female DCE which I assumed was for VGA. :suicide: Over familiar with PC's I'm afraid. ;)
