    Panasonic TH42PW7B plasma cable help needed!!!!

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    O.K......... I know it is pretty simple for some....but not me...oh no!
    I am in the process of fitting the equiptement listed below and am unsure of me connection needs...so advice would be appreciated.

    I have a Panasonic plasma screen TH42PW7B, below that is a sky digibox, below that a Yamaha DV-SL-100 dvd player and below that is a Yamaha HTR 5640 RDS av amp. What I need to know is what cables exit the screen and where do they connect to?....do I have 1 scart to the digibox and one to the dvd?.....i really am unsure, are the digibox and dvd linked? I need to get it right so the wife will be impressed after all the mess I have made cutting in to the wall!!!!

    any advise would be appreciated

    many thanks :(

    Kitster what connections have you got on the plasma? do you have any video boards? If not i think you need some good scart cables and a JS RGB>VGA converter with a good VGA cable..........

    does your dvd player have two scart sockets on the back?

    if so, then i would assume it would switch RBG.

    plug the digibox scart out, into the dvd scart in, then the dvd scart out, into a scart on the plasma.

    thats the way i would do it.

    i personally wouldnt bother using the AV Amp to switch the video signals.

    hmm, just another thought, on the panasonic pw6 you can send a component video signal ie from a dvd player into the vga input, but you have to make a lead. i assume its the same on the pw7

    right then.............at the moment the screen has no boards in...so do i get a component board to fit ...and have component leads from the dvd to screen and a scart lead from the digibox to screen in to a scart board.......... i can cook, weld, sew, wheelie at 120 mph...........but this confuses the hell outa me.
    cheers! for the advice so far

    yes you need a component board but for rGB Scart sources the JS RGB>VGA converter that uses the Panny PC input is better PQ if you have a VCR or other composite only device you will need the scart board, see the "help a beginner thread" in Plasma forum FAQ
