    My DVD player only has a s-video out and a composite video out, obviously the s-video is the best option.
    so i take it all i need is s-video cable to connect up the projector and the player? i will not gain anything by using the s-video to scart connector i have a present will i?

    also can anyone help on these:
    800x600 (SVGA) - will this be the max resolution i can only get using s-video?
    1,024x768 (XGA) - what is XGA?
    1,280x1,024 (SXGA) - what is SXGA??

    thanks.

    S-video 4 pin mini DIN to 4 pin Mini Din is what you need!
    Save scart for RGB enabled device like freeview or sky box.

    thanks, by using s-vdeo does the resolution max out at 800x600?
    ie will i get the projectors full potential with s-video cable?

    ermsort of you will be getting 576i or 480i Video resw as opposed to PC RES without an uprade to PS DVD player you wont gain much, but if DVD is Composite and S-video only I am guessing it is a budget model which may not get the best out of the PJ

    its the sony dav-s800, cost £800 about 20months back, so it was high spec then, maybe not now, may upgrade to a RGB compnent dvd player, only if the picture difference is hugely different! im sceptical of super duper cables and connections sometimes!

    Very odd that it has no component out!
    £800 for a complete system is budget myfriend! Hi end is £1000+ on a DVD player. £2000+ on AV amp and £5000+ on speakers. Many would argue that with me! £40,000 is the cost of a basic proper HC room conversion!
