    Craig,

    Have you got a Tesco near you? They're selling Toshiba 240's for £49! This is a fantastic Progressive Scan DVD player which will work perfectly with the 9986. Go get it and order a Component lead from tvcables and we'll tell you how to hook it up when you get it.

    Has anyone tried the Pioneer 575 with the 9986?

    Any flicker problems?

    Cheers

    Thanks Jimsan

    I have got myself a 240e , and some decent component leads from richer sounds. What Next, I think I know what to do (i.e use the vga converter and the component to vga adapter both supplied with tv. My confusion is how do I pass the audio to the tv. Dont' have an AV amp so need to use the tv for sound.

    Cheers

    Craig

    You'll need a Phono lead. This'll connect to the appropriate Audio outs on the DVD player and the Audio IN on the TV. Make sure you connect to the correct ones.

    Let us know if you're struggling. Hook up a scart too. Actually the scart may provide the audio anyway...even when using the Component feed.

    Let us know...

    If I connect scart will the audio only work when on that particular Av channel. and Not when on the DVI Input?. Also where are the audio in ports for the DVI Channel?

    Cheers

    HI,
    the DVI lead is picture only. Connect two phonos to the audio outputs on the 240, and then on the two phono inputs next to the dvi on the philips...
