    Hi People,

    Getting a Toshiba 32ZP38 which has component input (i believe) and also have a Philips DVDR80 which can output component video.

    My question is, should I connect with a cheap coponent cable such as this one or a better quality Scart like this one offered on the forum?

    Also, if I connect with component, so I need to transmit sound another way? I am using the optical digital output of DVDR80 to feed my Sony HD-K250 surround sound system, but I still have a coaxial digital output?

    Any thoughts appreciated.

    Thanks

    Why dont you just spend some more moeny and get a decent component cable. Look at mark Grants cables. Not cheap but top quality :smashin: 1m = £50. If thats to dear how about:

    Have good reviews for a cheap component cable. If you use the component cable you will need to route the sound out to the sound system with the optical or digital cable. IMHO digital coax sound better than optical because they have less processing. I have one of these going spare (1m) cheap if interested as I upgraded to one of Mark Grants cables :D
