Okay guys, I thinkIm starting to get the hang of the connections..... For my DVD player, ( Pioneer 717) I use a gadget to convert scart RGB to componment For my Pace digibox (cable) I purchase a gadget to convert scart RGB to VGA But what about my hardly used componments, my laserdisc player ( but still loves, esp for starwars triology and a couple of concerts) and video player ( will will source as a terristal unit if cable goes down on me. Whilst I could use composite video ( the yellow phone hole!) could i use a scart to S-video and use my yamaha as a video switching box. I could use my yamaha to do this with composite, but would the quality be better if i could convert scart to s-video? Would I need anothe gadget to do this? Yours slightly less confused. Adrian "OOps, I think Im missing soemthing here, does your DVD player need to be componment cabable,or will the gadgetry convert the RGB into Componment signal? Additioanlly, regarding the scart toSvideo leads, I thinkI need to purchase Scart to S video Out cables, and not Scart to S video In cables? Can soem one please confirm my recent findings!!"
