    Hi,

    this is a question that I should prbably know the answer to but here goes.

    I have a Sony TV with 1 No. RGB scart socket and 2 No. S Video Scarts

    Reading the 3803 manual I think it suggests that I can connect from the component out on 3803 to the TV ( 3 phono's to the RGB Scart?) and I can then use the inputs available on the 3803 to do the following :-

    Use the component in to the 3803 to connect to my DVD 2900 DVD player component output?

    Use one of the S - Video inputs to connect my Sony Play Station (would this upmix the signal to component/RGB? and pass it through the component out /RGB scart into the TV?)

    Use one of the S Video inputs/composite inputs for my music player it has an S video output/composite output (would this upmix the signal to component/RGB? and pass it through the component out/RGB Scart into the TV?)

    What I am really trying to do is to get the very best signal from all of the components in the system - so any other suggestions would be helpful (other than having an RGB scart switch)

    Many thanks for your help

    Hi

    Component and RGB are different things. Your TV will be expecting an RGB signal but the Denon will be outputting a Component signal so you won't get an image. If you want to run everything through your amp then to get it to work with your TV you'll have to use S-Video for all inputs and outputs. Another option is to connect the DVD player directly to the TV via RGB Scart and the Playstation and music player directly via S-Video cables.
