    I recently purchased one of these from Dell. Luckily there is a long lead time which will provide a little timeto ensure the HT is ready. I currently have the stand and the speakers. Is there anything else I will need to start some viewing of my movies?

    My Sony has 2 component, 2 s-video and 1 composite video cable inputs
    will this be achievable with the panasonic?
    TH-42PWD6UY 42-inch Multimedia Plasma

    Thanks

    Greetings

    Plasmas typically have far fewer inputs than most consumer devices. You are probably looking at one Video, one s-vid, one rgbhv/component and maybe a 15 pin vga. That is all.

    Regards

    I'm pretty sure the model you bought has 1 composite, 2 s-video, one component, and one DB-15 (PC compatible) RGB. With Panasonic plasmas all but the RGB input comes on a slot cartridge that you can swap out for other cartridges. For example, if you aren't using the s-video inputs you could take out one of the cartridges and replace it with another type of input. Look here for more info.

    I looked closer at that brochure I linked to. Your TV has 3 input cartridge slots, 2 of which are filled with:

    a) 1 s-video and 2 composites, and
    b) 1 component/HD

    Plus there's the fixed RGB PC input. As I mentioned before, there's an empty slot you can use to add a new input. The choices are on page 6 of the brochure. It looks the two pre-filled slots are filled with a big two-slot-wide cartridge with all the inputs on it, so replacing any of the existing inputs means removing all existing inputs, not just half of them.
