    Hi
    Bought one of these bad boys on thursday. Impressive so far.

    I have my SD sky box in AV1
    SD DVD player in AV3
    I also have another set top box for the football in AV2 but the picture is not the best. Is this because AV2 dosen't have RGB.

    Basically whats the best way to connect all these to the tv

    Also when i play a DVD it starts in a green colour.
    I have to change the scart setting on my dvd player from
    RGB to Y Cb Cr to get the right colour. There seems to be no way to save this setting.

    Any info appreciated

    Ta very much

    I'm not familiar with the connections for this set but what you should really be aiming for, providing your AV equipment, ie. DVD player or satellite receiver has these connections is something like this :

    HDMI 1st
    Component 2nd
    Scart (RGB enabled) 3rd
    S-Video 4th
    Scart (composite, ie. non-RGB enabled) 5th

    If your AV equipment as well as the TV has options in the menu to say how each piece of equipment is being connected to each input on the TV, eg. DVD with scart outputting RGB signal, make sure that these are all set correctly for the type of connection & signal which is to be output.

    Might be worth saving an RGB socket on the TV by running your DVD into the back of the Sky box (VCR SCART socket) so that you can chain RGB through to a single socket on the TV. When the DVD player is off, it'll show Sky, turn it on and you get DVD.
