    I'd almost built myself up to buying a 37PW7 from Richersounds at £999, thinking Media PC. A friend suggested I call the Panasonic shop to see what they could do. I explained about the Richersounds offer and they said they were offering a 37PW7 with Tuner Box and stand for £1500.

    ........stay with it, it gets better........

    I explained that I ONLY wanted the panel. They didn't want to split up their offer. They called me back offering the 37PW7, Tuner Box and stand for £1200!

    Dilemma:
    I don't want to watch analogue TV on my panel. But, the Tuner Box gives me several scarts (good). The Panny scart board has a bad reputation.

    Does the Tuner Box suffer in the same way and would I be better off with a JS VGA/Scart box or Media PC approach?

    Is the Tuner Box effectively worthless, or is it good for Scart inputs?

    Help appreciated!

    You will get a significantly better picture going down the JS Tech RGB to VGA converter route. Avoid the tuner box.
