    hi guys, how are you doing.

    i recently bought a flat jvc av28x10eks. it has 3 scarts, 1 rgb through which i put my cable box. what is the best way to get a good picture from my pioneer dv-340 dvd player (ie i have no rgb compatible scart soket free on the back of my tv)?

    by the way, i do have s-video sockets on tv and dvd player if that helps.
    Cheers

    Hi Arthur

    Welcome to the forum.

    Using the S-VHS socket will give you a decent picture, theres not a lot in it between RGB & SVHS. If you dont want use the svhs socket on the front of your tv, get yourself an svhs to scart cable and plug it into AV2 or AV3 on your tv.

    You´ll have to go into Ext Settings menu on the tv and enable it to pick up the svhs signal.

    Has your cable box got another scart socket? if so it might be able to pass thru the RGB signal, you could connect the dvd player to this.

    Alternatively, you could get a scart switching box.

    Hope this helps

    cheers

    I think you mean S-Video not S-VHS, they are two different things.
    Other than that, Jase is correct - RGB is better than S-Video, but on a 28" TV you probably wont notice any difference.

    Generic answer so apply only what is relevent in your case

    Various ways to connect depending on what you think is acceptable.

    option 1 - RGB for both DVD and digibox but need to record via the RF.
    Audio carried from TV to Amp and DVD to amp (TV passes audio from vcr and
    digibox)

    DVD > Digibox VCR scart ( use scart lead, set DVD to output RGB)
    Digibox > TV (use scart lead into RGB scart socket)
    Video > TV (scart lead into composite scart socket - Don't use an expensive cable, it would be wasted)
    Aerial > digibox > vcr > TV

    DVD > Amp (using digital co-ax or optical -identical quality, depends on your available connections)
    TV > Amp (using 2x phono connection)

    -----------------------------------------

    Option 2 - RGB for digibox and s-video for DVD. Allows recording via the scart. Audio the same as above

    DVD > TV (scart into s-video scart)
    Digibox > TV (scart into RGB scart)
    Digibox > VCR (composite scart - Don't use expensive cable for this one)
    Aerial > digibox > vcr > TV

    DVD > Amp (using digital co-ax or optical -identical quality, depends on your available connections)
    TV > Amp (using 2x phono connection)
    ------------------------------------------

    Option 3 - TV doesn't pass audio or doesn't pass it with decent quality. Will require manual switching between sources. Use video connections as option 1 or 2.

    DVD > Amp (using digital co-ax or optical -identical quality, depends on
    your available connections)
    TV > Amp (using 2x phono connection)
    VCR > Amp (using 2x phono connection)
    Digibox > Amp (using 2x phono connection)
