    Hi, My Screen has the following connections:

    INPUT 1: Composite Video BNC (with S-video), audio RCA (L, R)
    INPUT 2: Composite Video RCA, audio RCA (L, R) [input/output selectable]
    INPUT 3: BNC (Y, Pb/Cb, Pr/Cr) / (R, G, B, HD, VD)
    PC INPUT: Mini D-sub 15-pin / DVI-D
    OUTPUT: Composite Video BNC (INPUT 1/2), mini D-sub 15-pin

    I'm running a MCE 2005 HTPC to it via DVI-D and want to know the best possible (highest quality) way to connect an Xbox or PS2 to the screen.

    Can anyone help? BNC??? What's all that about? I've not seen any leads for console with them on.

    Thanx for your time!

    BNC are quite common for component connections - most good quality kit will use them in preference to phonos. Its the twist connectors, like the old thin ethernet ones. For best input, you would want component with bnc<->phono adaptors. If you only have 3 phono outputs, just connect those coloured R, G and B. Hopefully your display will accept the synch on green.
