I am about to buy a panasonic TH-42PWD7W. This is a plasma monitor, progressive scan but not high def. I have noticed that the sockets for composite and component video are not the standard RCA sockets but look like RF antenna sockets. What are these called and what jacks fit into them? In order to get the best picture I can from my tosh RDSX32 DVD recorder, I will have to make up a cable. The Tosh only has scart and the plasma does not have scart. Can I get a ready made cable using RGB scart on one end and component video and stereo audio RCA jacks on the other? Can I get a fairly decent length (upto 10m) of such a cable or do I have to make it up? My concern is that component jacks are not RCA but some other format. Other issues I have with this plasma are that it is a monitor, ie it has no built-in tuner. Also it only has 2 video inputs, one composite and one component. The lack of tuner is not critical as I could use my VCR for this purpose. However, this coupled with the relative lack of inputs means that I will be dependent on my receiver to output to the plasma and that I can't just use the "TV" on its own. The monitor does have speakers. Are there any simple work arounds that you can suggest to help me if I don't want to use the receiver? The problem is that my receiver is dodgy and unreliable (Denon 3300). Can anyone recommend a simple switchbox that takes in more than one source and outputs to the TV? Are there any cheap tuners that I could use or would a second hand VCR dedicated for that job be the answer? Finally if I were to buy a new receiver, preferably denon or yamaha, would the middle of the range models up convert all signals to component?
