    Ive just bought a PWD6 today from RS. (£1500 inc Scart board and Vivanco WMS7501PS bracket).

    Can you get a cable that goes from DSUB > YPbPr component? I've looked but I couldnt find any. I'm sure I saw someone mention one whilst I was reading up on the screen. I also remember someone posting that you cannot adjust RGB levels when using the DSUB connection. Is this true?

    I'm still not 100% sure how I am going to connect everything up (DVD Player with component, DVDr with component, SKY+, Xbox, PS2)

    I reluctantly bought the scart teminal board. I wanted to be able to use the screen straightaway and RS didnt have the component board in stock. I can see the noise that people mention. I was planning on getting a component card and component switcher for Xbox, PS2, DVD and a SCART > DSUB converter for the SKY+ box.

    I also have a MS Media Center PC nearby which I was considering using on the dsub but its not desperatly important.

    Apologies if I'm repeating what other people have already asked, I just wanted an opinion on my particular setup plus the question regarding the cable. :)

    Why not have the dvd-r on rgb loopthrough the sky+ box via the scart in ... the dvd on component in (new card), the xbox & ps2 on a component switch cable on a component in (new card) and the pc on the vga/dsub ?
