    BNC board was at www.plasmaware.co.uk - states 5 day delivery, received mine in 3. Think it was £74 inc VAT.

    You may need to get some of the RCA-BNC convertors though - £6 for 3 from either Maplin or www.tvcables.co.uk.

    Do these converters compromise quality in any way?
    I just had a look and these boards are for the PW6...do they fit the PW7?

    PW6-PW7 Component Boards are the same been waiting for mine since September 2004 from Sound & Vision contacted Panasonic they said sometime at begining of 2005 its a bit odd though when you consider most people who buy thiese plasmas are going for quality so prefer component over Scart, you'd think the Boards would be easy to obtain???

    If that was true i wouldnt have nearly 10,00 posts and MAW/JOE/Gordon/Piers would have any customers............... ;) Bad planning from panny and poor advice from resellers.....but there are soltions/ BNC board/Dual slot/ VGA will accept component signals

    reading more and more about this sort of thing makes me begin to realise how incompetent the panasonic plasma division is. what with no availability of terminal boards (still waiting for my DVI board), the total disregard for PAL users who want to run digital signals and the very poor levels of service/customer support. They need a kick up the backside IMO, preferably in the form of another plasma manufacturer coming out with a best selling product which wakes panasonic out of their complacency.

    I agree with you njr. Bit miffed that I still cant get a component board for my PW7 easily. I think you are right, they have no reason to be effecient - we already have the plasma display and have handed over our cash already. Profit on the boards will be small in comparison obviously.
