    OK drooling gimp XBOX and PS2 can ouput componet so use that via amp if it has 3 component inputs
    ntl via JS RGB>VGA converter to VGA on panel
    Sounds like DVi for PC
    So choices are Panny Panel PWD6 (black) £1549 AV sales with free input card need to buy DVi card £1700 inc wall/desk mount total + cables & converter
    for VGA/component and DVi inputs Deliverd JAN (limited stock offer)
    Panny PWD7(black or silver) £1860.15 deliverd (black) £1060.15 delivered (silver) both same input and mounts as above
    Again Panny PHD7 1024x768 res panel better for PC USE £2770.60 with same inputs etc as above

    Pioneer MXE1 similar to PHD 7 but more money (I'm a panny expert really not PIO)
    Some food for thought

    Anyone seen the new Pio PDP-42MVE1? Sounds promising on paper. Looks like it has all the necessary connections that are missing on the pw pannys

    in that case use the one you play most via component or get a component switcher
