I just received my 42PHD5 Panny (from Plasma Extreme) and would like some assistance in hooking it up. I have the RCA DTC 100 tuner, Sony STRDE925 receiver and a Sony DVD. What is the best way to hook up the plasma for the best possible picture? Have triple LNB dish so I intend to watch HDTV as well as other btoadcasts.

There are differing opinions on this, but my advice is to go component video connections all around, if your boxes have that functionality. For convenience, I've wired the STB and DVD into the receiver component inputs and then output from the receiver to the panny plasma. You might also need to run a composite output from the receiver to the panny if it needs that for its setup functions.


There's also some discussion around whether or not there's and degradation of signal by switching component video through your receiver. Haven't seen any issue with mine, but I'm running Denon 4802, which is a different box from yours.
