    I have my LCD connected to my system using a scart and wanted to wall mount my screen. My amp doesn't have s-video out and the only other alternative to scart is the yellow/red/white plugs which give a lower quality signal as I understand? What is the best way to connect them together once the panel is mounted. I thought of fitting a female scart connection point by the unit and another behind the panel and running a cable between them. Has anyone done this? The other option is chasing a scart lead into the wall (which is plasterboard/stud work) with the plugs hanging out each end. This will look a bit messy as I wanted to feed the cables through blanking plates to tidy things up which would require a rather large hole in the plate to feed the scart plug through. Any ideas?

    I would get a blanking plate with a scart socket fitted, www.keene.co.uk to a good selection of connectors and blanking plates. It will take a bit of fiddly soldering work but will look much better than a cable hanging out the wall :thumbsup:
