    Hello Yeff

    Depending on what Input Boards you have installed in the Display you have a few options as far as your SKY+ Box goes.

    If your AV Receiver has YUV 'Component' Switching you could add a JS Technology RGB2YUV converter and switch the SKY+ and DVD player via the AV Receiver - your also going to want the SKY sound (Digital Optical) via the AV Receiver.

    VanDamme, Molex and BetterCables are firm favourites as far as cable manufacturers who can provide the cables you require.

    If the above makes sense your looking at:

    SKY+ to RGB2YUV converter
    Video - SCART to SCART (1m)

    SKY+ to AV Receiver
    Audio - Optical Digital cable (10m)

    RGB2YUV converter to AV Receiver
    Video - 3RCA to 3RCA (10m)

    DVD to AV Receiver
    Video - 3RCA to 3RCA (1m)
    Audio - Optical Digital cable (1m)

    AV Receiver to Display
    Video - 3RCA to HD15(VGA) (3m)

    Digital Video Source
    Video - HDMI to HDMI (3m)

    You'll also require an RGB2YUV converter which has an SRP of £145.00.

    Do you need perfectly flat speaker cable - or would skinny round cable do?

    Best regards

    Joe

    Hi Joe, thanks for reply, I was going to connect them like this:

    Sky+ to Yamaha - S-Video & Optical (0.5m)
    Toshiba to Yamaha - 3RCA & Digital Coaxial (0.5m)
    Yamaha to Plasma - 3RCA to HD15(VGA) (3m)
    Speaker cable would be flat, as to go under wood flooring.

    Would you be able to supply these?

    Thanks Steve

    Hello Yeff

    Keep in mind the SKY+ S-Video signal would most likely look best going direct to the Display as S-Video - the conversion to YUV in the AV Receiver is likely to deliver a slightly soft image.

    I'll PM you regards cable supply.

    Best regards

    Joe
