    Ive bought a plasma Panasonic TH-42PE30B TV (which has progressive scan) and I have now purchased a Panasonic DMR-E95H HDD DVD recorder.
    I am slightly confused as to the BEST way of connecting this to the TV. Do I use SCART or the composites?
    I also intend to link up my Amp to this system too.

    So Ill need to be purchasing a good SCART to SCART cable AND a set of composite cables? I thought only 1 cable was needed for this. I was thinking of composite just cos of the progressive scan capability.
    Im gonna connect the Amp to the DVD recorder with an optical cable

    Componenet-
    Red-Green-Blue. 3 phone to phono

    composite-
    Red-White-Yellow. three phono to phono.

    Componenet only carries a visuall signal split in to the red , green and blue Componenets.

    Composite carries all the visuall signal through the yellow lead with the left and right audio through the red and white leads.

    The Viera shares the av4 input with one of the scarts and the componenet input.
    Like hornydragon says. connect both and have the audio signal transmitted via the scart and the video via componenet.

    Thanx peeps. Im going to buy a decent componenet cable but as you say the Audio isn't catered for.

    However - I am investing in a good Amp and surround speaker system and I was wondering whether the SCART lead would be necessary for this setup i.e would I need to use the Viera's TV speakers anyway?

    Im unsure as to whether people use their TV speakers when they have a surround setup.
