    I'm currently "doing up" a 5m x 5m room. I would appreciate advice on what cables should be tracked into the wall for a wall mounted 42" plasma which will then be connected to a surround sound speaker / dvd theater system.
    The TV I'm considering is the Sony KDEP42XS1 with a Sony HTSL500 surround sound kit.

    Simple answer! Scart is not better than component

    Thanks Parklife. Will I be OK with a 12m scart? If so would it be better if it were RGB only?

    If you have the choice of scart or component...then go for component. For a 12m long scart then I would get a good quality lead thus minimising any signal loss.

    If you are hacking the walls then even if you do not have component I would be tempted to put one in anyway!

    Thanks. I was going for two scarts now I think i'll go for one scart and a component. I have hacked the walls so might as well do it....then I suppose I can evaluate the best when I get the TV?
