    What do you reckon guys, i want to daisy chain all my gear (SKY+, Xbox and DVD Player) all through a Scart to Component JS Tech box into my Panny 42" Plasma .

    So i need 2 SCART sockets. Multiregion out of the box or with a handset hack would also be a real bonus

    Fewer brands provide twin SCARTs these days, assuming everyone has a receiver and doesn't need to daisy-chain, but, Pioneer still seem to offer them with the DV-668 or 868. You can order them MR from a dealer.

    What are my other options then ?
    My Setup is :
    Panny TH-42PWD7 with Component and S-Video card (want to keep it to component only for cable concealment)
    Sky+
    Xbox
    DVD Player

    If i were to buy a DVD player with a single scart connection ?

    Buy a scart switcher ?

    If so can anyone recommend me a supplier

    Joytech make a good scart switcher, but can't you route the DVD player thru the Sky+ - not the best solution but workable until you upgrade?

    Nah cause atm the Xbox is routed through it, because that doubles as a DVD player if necessary

    Or if you're looking for an amp, why not try the low end Pioneer models with Scart switching?
