    I'd be interested in this too, I have PWD6 & am looking to buy projector early next year (probably Hitachi ilumina). Laserdisc would be o.k. as it has 2 outputs , so one goes to plasma, one to PJ. As above, any ideas on DVD ? S-video would be o.k. as it would go through my amp which has a couple of outputs, but I will be buying Denon DVD2900 in new year & want to take advantage of component out to both plasma & PJ. I was thinking of using a 3 phono switchbox (like the ones for composite video & 2 audio). This should be o.k. (anyone out there prove me wrong ??!!) as the box doesn't know whether it's switching 3 audio & video or 3 comonent video feeds - it's just a switching device.
    What do you guys use (also interested in how you feed RGB scart to PJ) ???

    I am also thinking long term of upgrading my DSP-A1 for the new Yammy Z9 cos' that upconverts all inputs and has double switchable component outputs ! (bit pricey at £3k plus though !)

    I am about to have this problem too.

    I will have a 504 and have an 868 and an hs20 pj. All are HDMI but none has two hdmis sockets in order to sit in the middle of the chain which I know is possible since hdmi is intended for daisy chaining.

    In lesser situations I believe my ax10 has two component outputs.

    I have JVC D-ILA G20 projector and Fujitsu 5003 50" plasma screen. They are both connected to a dedicated HTPC. The pj and plasma HTPC's are in turn connected to a media server PC that holds all the DVDs, music, photograph and runs Nebula Electronics DigitTV receiver (terrestrial digital TV).

    When I get a new DVD I copy it the server first (that takes about 20mins). Subsequently the original DVD is stored away and the copied DVD files are available to any PC within the house (there are several) in the same quality as the original.

    I can watch the same DVD on both plasma and pj simultaneously if needed.

    I have Sky, DVD, Xbox and gamecube plugged in to a Holdan scart switcher.

    http://www.holdan.co.uk/

    I use the RGB output to feed one of these.

    I then plug one scart into the plasma and one into the Z1 via a JS Technology RGB Scart to component box.

    Hope this helps.

    Merry Christmas.
