    This will work and at that price it is very cheap. However it is normally used for daisy chaining in multiple display setups and I believe occupies 2 slots so depends on if you have the space. It also only goes into slots 1 & 2 so no Scart boards can be added either.

    i was worried about how many slots it occupied, so i did a bit of searching and it looks like it is only a single, but i could be wrong.

    These will work on UK screens, but be warned it is a two slot board, so only buy if you don't mind using up two slots.

    you are both right, it is a dual slot board.

    might be of use to someone though.

    Only needs to go into slot 1/2 if you want RS232 loop through. So can be used in slot 2+3 with SCART or other board in slot 1. :clap:

    Can this be used in addition to the standard (supplied) VGA input on the PW6?
    I'd like to have my DVD going into one and tuner box into another.

    and if one buys these one would also have to buy a lot of additional cables ? if I want to buy this one and watch DVD with component , and a tuner with SCART and also the XBOX, PS2 and GC I don´t think that it would be a good idea to buy this, would it ?

    david you need more than a terminal board, you need a video swicth (suggest a 4-1 component switcher for XBOX,PS2,GC and DVD, connected to a component board, and either scart or JS RGB>VGA for tuner......

    RS232 is serial data (plasma can be controlled by RS232 in stead of IR very usefull for commercial installs)

    I've been away for the weekend, but all the above are correct, jwillans hope your board has arrived, just out of interest does anyone know if the component signal is fed any differently via the TY42TM6G to a standard component board?

    sldt - Yes the board arrived on Saturday but I've only just collected it from the post office today. Many thanks for the quick delivery. I'm looking forward to trying it out after I get back from France in a couple of weeks.
