    Hi Folks

    I am considering the above arrangement

    PW7 with hdmi board

    and the Panasonic SA-XR70 - will look at speakers later when budget allows

    Questions for the experts

    When is the hdmi board available or is it available now

    Will the hdmi board accept all the component video standards

    The Panasonic SA-XR70 has hdmi in/out, component in/out svideo etc, will it convert all the inputs to a signal that may be transmitted via the hdmi output to the hdmi input on the display

    Will this sytem be as future proof as possible given my budget restraints £2.5k apart from the SD display - will look at HD in a couple of yrs

    I have at present a freeview box with RGB scart out which will be changed out for a Netgem with component out

    I have an xbox modded with component out and optical digital

    I will be purchasing an hdmi dvd player at a later date

    I cant really be bothered with buying all the input boards for the display (to many cables) and hope I should not have to with the Panasonic SA-XR70

    The Panasonic SA-XR70 has a tuner and appears to be a good quality amp / video receiver for the money

    I wish to stick with hdmi, as this, we anticipate is the way to go - possible xbox2 with hdmi, pc's etc etc

    Any thoughts, comments, restrictions, problems, ideas on the above will off course be very much appreciated.

    Thanks

    Calmac

    PW7 HMDI boards will take a few months suggest you wait it out until the Experts have had a chance to get to grips with them Pannies new S-91 DVD player matches amp perfectly but remember first few amps etc will have very limited HDMI input most are one in one out or 2 in on some top end units
