    Picture is excellent via dvd but sky not that good.
    Is there any way to improve the picture with sky. Its going via panasonic dvd recorder then media box with monster scarts.
    Also get some lip sync probs with dvd player (toshiba sd530e) is there anything that can be done to cure this

    Lip sync probs from Sky wouldn't be unusual but surprised that you have it from the DVD. How is the DVD player connected to the panel?

    I suspect that the dreaded "tuner box" strikes again. Lots of previous threads on this.

    I have heard that their not that good. What would be the best way to connect everything up. was thinking scart box with dvd and sky into dvd rec then into plasma with component input board.
    Wasnt that impressed with component and media box though. could this be media box or lead(thor component cable 3m) picture seemed to look better with rgb scart or s video

    Thor component cable is good, media box isn't and the conversion in the DVD recorder isn't brilliant. JS Tech converter is much better but more dosh.

    Many of us sponsors of the forum sell the converters. The VGA converter gives a much improved Sky picture though you lose colour saturation control (some think this is a problem, in practice it rarely is, in my view) BUT you already have a PC going into the VGA port so would need another VGA board if you aren't going to be swapping cables. The more expensive, but more convenient option is the RGB to component converter plus a component board for the plasma.

    is there a cheap way to convert the pc to a different signal. would a vga to scart cable work or would the signal have to be changed?
    this would then leave the vga port free for sky/dvd etc.

    Not a PC expert but I think you are suggesting sending the PC output via that tuner box again! I can only imagine that it will do the same nasties to the PC output as it does to video. Flog it and use the money to get the right bits.

    Amazingly some folk have managed to sell them for goodish money on ebay!

    Once the tuner box is gone which scart are you thinking about?
