    Hello all,

    I have been using a Joytech AV control centre to rig up the following:

    360, XBox, PS2, Gamecube, Sony DVD Recorder RDR-HX510

    The SCART output has been going through to one of my RGB inputs on my Sony CRT. Also, the one digital sound output goes into my Sony cinema sound system for DTS and digital( two inputs into the Joytech, the 360 and my Sony DVD Recorder RDR-HX510).

    I have however decided to get a HD TV, the Toshiba 32WLT58.

    I plan on leaving the optical sound as it is. I have some questions which I think are a bit tricky to answer, but hopefully someone has been in a similar situation:

    1) Should I get the JOYTECH VGA lead for the 360, so it leaves the component free for my DVD player or is the VGA picture really poor?

    2) Is it worth upgrading my DVD player(rather not as I've just bought it) to one of those cheap Samsung HDMI players?

    3) Is it worth buying a component lead for the PS2, bearing in mind all my games are PAL?

    4) What 3metre component lead would you recommend for my DVD, if I keep it?

    I think I have more questions, but this will do for now.

    I really wish there was more that one component input for the TV, as I really don't want to spend more cash atm on a receiver...

    Thanks for any feedback!
