    Hi :hiya: I'm a newbie so please be gentle!

    The lounge of my new home is going to be plastered and I was wondering what cables I need to get for a plasma with an integrated tuner as the electrcians have no clue. I'm thinking:

    * 1x Belden Component (from Mark Grant)
    * 2x THOR RGB Scart
    * 1x S-Video

    Sounds is all going through a DVD/Receiver. Have I missed anything vital out. Could I do a powerpoint presentation on my laptop from these cables?

    Any help would be fantastic! :)

    to the list add a VGA-VGA cable perhaps even DVi....... But VGA would be fine... PS chuck a couple of lengths of Cat5 in as well and a pair of stereo Audio cables (so you can listen to Plasma TV tner sound on amp.....

    Thanks for the reply mate :) What would Cat5 be used for mate as my current understanding of it is that its a network cable.
