    I am a little bit confused of TV connection. My TV has Scart video input. Actually, I am using this TV input for my HTPC S video output. I have one IXOS S to Scart video cable for this purpose. And I do not have any problem.

    Can I use the IXOS cable with AVR 300 S video out (connection 32)?

    When i read the AVR300 handbook page E-12, I understand that I need a special cable which has an additional trigger connection (made by QED) for this type of connection.

    I found one QED cable (http://www.hifistore.co.uk/product.php?qsProd=AV1120) but it does not have an additional cable for trigger connection.

    I am lost. How will I connect AVR300 to my TV?

    You can use the existing cable plugged into the s-video output of the avr300.
    Just plug in a straight s-video cable from your pc to the avr300, assign it to the right input selection and you'll be good to go.
    No need for the 'special' cable. That's for people using RGBs over a scart - as far as you avr300 is concerned, you're only using s-video.

    Thanks for the answer, cwick.

    What will be the Video Status in the General Settings Menu? Based on your answer, it is not important?

    You're welcome. Didn't realise you had scart sockets in Seattle. Horrible things, seems they get everywhere.
