    <warning - I'm not an expert - but here's my opinion>

    No reason why what you're suggesting won't work. In fact, you can "daisy chain" your scarts assuming that your freeview and dvd player have an "in" scart. That would save you using a 3 to 1 scart block.

    (Are you sure your DVD player doesn't have component out - which means you have another option - run a "component to VGA" cable from your DVD player to the VGA connector on the PW6.)

    For split display you need seperate inputs, so yes, you'd need two scart boards on the plasma for this.

    For advice on the best set up possible you'd really need to tell the forum what inputs and outputs you have on each device. Oh ... and some people may advise you to get a JS convertor to convert your scart(s) to component - which will (in theory) give you a better picture than Scart. There's a costs associated with that though :)


    Cheers,
