    In the next day or two I will have to order my Plasma.
    However I still need some advice.
    At present I have Pioneer DV-656A DVD player and VSX-C300 Receiver with
    a Panasonic SB-TP55 speaker system (okay, I'm an amatuer)

    If I buy the Viera from AV-Sales what will I require in order
    to get the best out of the above, together with a TIVO and
    European Satellite system?
    I realise I could telephone the sales people but alas
    I have Emphysema and am not too good on the telephone.

    What cables do I need, and where do they go? Once I have the details
    in writing I can then sort things out at my leisure.
    I realise Maw and HD must be so tired of the same questions, but
    I am not that familiar with setting up all of today's equipment so please excuse me.
    Thanking you in advance for your time and patience.

    Right, I might not be able to help with all of it but here goes.
    If your dvd player has componenet inputs on the back then it would be a good idear to use the red green and blue componnet cables to connect to your plasma. The input for this on the plasma is av4c it is shared with the scart input wich is av4. This means that you can get the best possible picture from the dvd player plus send the sound to the tv by connecting a scart lead from the player to av4 on the back of the plasma. RGB Scart will also be best with sky digital or cable. They should be connected to av1. only av1 and av4 will take an rgb signal on the vierra.
    hope this has been of some help.
    Dave. :)
