    I'm looking at the profigold leads; scart to scart and scart to component. My DVD player has digital optical output; can I make use of this instead?

    The digital optic out is for audio only!!

    If your DVD player has component output use that, and preferably set to progressive mode (if your DVD has that function). If not you will have to connect it in RGB mode (via scart as you said).

    Cheers :hiya:

    Just dug out some gold plated s video leads and a set of audio leads and it seems to be ok for now. My dvd does'nt have hdmi unfortunately. I need to upgrade to something half decent

    A Denon DVD-1910 with DVI output and upscaling would do the perfect job !!

    Im a bit confused rudy.

    If the tv and dvd have the Y Pb Pr (Green, Blue, Red) Component then get/use the component leads.
    If not, as stated, you will have to use the RGB Scart mode from DVD to TV.
    You can use Optical connection for 5.1 sound. Might be described as Toslink too.
    Or you can use Coaxial Electrical for sound too. That looks similar to an RCA jack plug, but both DVD and TV must have it.

    1 video socket is composite out (the worst possible connection) with the two audio sockets for stereo sound.

    Component out is three sockets usually, red, green and blue.
