    Yes another AE100 question, but don't let that put you off..

    I'm just about to buy one, and i'm wondering what is the best way of connecting it to a Sony 735D DVD player. I've thought about using the red,white and yellow video/audio connections in plugging into the Video in inputs.

    But can I plug them into the component in, or is there a better way to do it?

    Thanks in advance.

    Spend some time reading earlier threads on this issue.

    It has been gone over dozens of times.

    VGA is unargueably the best.

    "Red white yellow" - red and white are 2 channel audio, yellow is composite video - the worst quality option. Not to be confused with Component, which is a 3 channel video output. As the man Kramer says - poke around here, there's LOADS of info.

    I think what he means is can he use the 2 phono and 1 phono lead he has got as a component lead.

    I'd think it would be okay anyone else ?

    I'm confused now. I did read previous posts but did'nt really find a straightforward answer that a novice like me can understand.

    Currently I use a cable with these 3 leads(red,white and yellow) at one end, and a SCART at the other. I was going to buy new cable with 3 leads each end and plug one set of 3 into the DVD Player and the other into the componant in. Will this work?

    Yes you go from the component out of your 735 to the component on the pj :)

    Right, NJS, sorry if you're getting confused. You need to be a bit careful about which connectors you plug in.

    Have a look here http://www.techtronics.com/uk/shop/50-sony-dvp-s735d-735-multi-region-dvd-player.html for a breakdown of the connectors on the 735.
    Here's a similar breakdown for the AE100 http://www.techtronics.com/uk/shop/876-panasonic-pt-ae100e-lcd-projector.html - note the connector sockets are component.
    Have a look here http://www.techtronics.com/uk/shop/510-how-to-hook-up-dvd-player.html for a summary of connection options - note that it states that RGB is not usually compatible with Component, so you may not be able to use this method, which would be a shame. Next best would be s-video, I guess.

    What you are currently connecting to your SCART is audio (red & white) and composite video (yellow). I presume this is going to your TV.

    Hope this helps - you may need to get a definitive answer re the 735's RGB socket compatability with Component input.

    I also have a Panny PT-AE100 and Sony 735D DVD Player.

    The best connection method available to you is to use Component Video (the red-green-blue phono sockets).

    I use an Ixos 5m 3 phono-to-3 phono lead.

    VGA is even better still but only available from a PC or DVD player with VGA out (such as Skyworth or Nintaus) and the Sony doesn't.

    Perfect! Looks like you can use the component/RGB (whatever they are) on the 735 to the component on the AE100.

    Yes,

    Buy a Profigold component lead (£50)

    Use S-Video if you dont have component outputs on your dvd player.
