This is a question about the best way to connect various devices to the television. I want to connect a DVD player, a VHS Video and a Decoder to the tv. There are 3 scarts on the tv, AV1,2 and 3 and for the moment I am not concerned with the various standards, i.e. RGB, S-VHS ect. I have connected the DVD to AV3.The tv manual suggests I connect the decoder via scart to the Video and then via scart again connect the Video to AV1 thus outputting the tv channels to AV1 and also using AV1 for playback of video. Is there anything to be gained/lost by this method or would I be better off connecting each unit to its own AV input. I understand if I was short of scarts this daisychaining would free up a scart input but for the moment I am only intrested in the best signal/picture. The other issue that concerns me is a similar sceanario i.e. inputting the DVD(or tv) picture signal to a D.D. amp and then outputting the picture to the tv from the amp, video switching I think this is called. Although my amp has this feature again would I be loosing picture quality by going through the amp or is there something to be gained by going this way. Again picture quality is my main concern. Thanks.
