    whithout the model I guess it's hard to give a proper answer, but most plasma's can take S-video or Composite and or component inputs. The tuner box usually is for tuneing tv channels. Or maybe the philips plasma need an additional board. Even so, if it is a late model you can probably have the tuner box repaired by philips anyhow... Ask for the model number of the plasma and post it here.... and call philips and ask them what a reapi costs on average for a tuner box.. they might say nothing , but who knows..

    If it's a philips plasma tv (code similar to PF429945, PF429955, PF429965 etc) then you will find it near impossible to buy the tuner box on it's own. If it's a philips plasma monitor (older codes were 42P10, 42P20, 42P30) then there is no tuner box but it has some video inputs on the back. The TVs have a two year on-site warranty so your mate should really consider getting the tuner fixed since the plasma dont work without it!!!!

    Being a paranoid type - how well do you know your friend?? I only ask since we get phone calls every now and then from someone who has bought a Pioneer or Philips plasma television, but only got the monitor part which won't work without the tuner part! They nearly always bought them off the back of a truck, or from a ripped out movie editing suite, or imported from Japan etc so I would say check it out properley before you hand any money over....

    Thanks for the replys and conserns,I`ve only known him for a couple of months but he don`t seem a dodge type (but i guess you don`t really know anyone these days) but i`ll ask for more info reguarding the tv as you`ve now got me a little paranoid, oh by the way the model number he gave me was pw9982 no idea if it`s right or not

    I'm sure it's kosher mate but always gotta keep your eye out with these things. The PW9982 is an older Philips code from about 3 years ago I would guess. I think it was popular then too but technology has changed so the price would have to be very tempting given that the latest one can be had for less than £3k and it's a little beaut!
