    The Panasonic PW7 comes with a collection of Ferite Cores to attach to any cables that you later chose to plug into it. I have a few questions about these....

    Are they to stop interferance from the cable affecting the Plasma or interference from the plasma effecting the signal in the cable?

    Also, are they necessary if one has high quality well shielded interconnects?

    If so......what shall I do about my flat scart, as they only fit round cables!

    Help?

    They are there to eliminate RFI interference that you may experience.

    Flat Ribbon Scarts are isolated by design.

    This isn't true. Flat ferrite clamps are also available for the same purposes.

    Stand to be corrected but I've only ever used ferrite core on mains cables and not interconnects ?

    Anyway Flat ribbon scarts are isolated (better than shielded) which is why they suffer far less from any kind of crosstalk.

    or you could try taking a quick picture with a digcam/phone and posting it here...

    might help and save a lot of time as you're not familure with a lot of the definitions
