    I have the following equipment:

    TV - SONY KVFQ32
    Receiver - SONY STBRD940
    DVD - SONY 336
    Speaker - BOSE AM15
    Cable - NTL digital

    What I would like some advice on is how to best connect everything together. What cables to use to connect each of the equipment together.

    For example - Do i connect everythin to the amp and how can i get on screen dislpay for my amp settings to work.

    My current setup is:

    TV -> DVD via SCART
    TV -> Cable via SCART
    DVD -> Receiver via Optical
    Cable -> Receiver via phono (red / white)

    With this setup i cannot get my on screen display to work for my sony reciver.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    All you need is an old phono cable to connect the receiver to the TV using composite in-out...

    arious ways to connect depending on what you think is acceptable.

    option 1 - RGB for both DVD and digibox but need to record via the RF.
    Audio carried from TV to Amp and DVD to amp (TV passes audio from vcr and
    digibox)

    DVD > Digibox VCR scart ( use scart lead, set DVD to output RGB)
    Digibox > TV (use scart lead into RGB scart socket)
    Video > TV (scart lead into composite scart socket - Don't use an expensive cable, it would be wasted)
    Aerial > digibox > vcr > TV

    DVD > Amp (using digital co-ax or optical -identical quality, depends on your available connections)
    TV > Amp (using 2x phono connection)

    -----------------------------------------

    Option 2 - RGB for digibox and s-video for DVD. Allows recording via the scart. Audio the same as above

    DVD > TV (scart into s-video scart)
    Digibox > TV (scart into RGB scart)
    Digibox > VCR (composite scart - Don't use expensive cable for this one)
    Aerial > digibox > vcr > TV

    DVD > Amp (using digital co-ax or optical -identical quality, depends on your available connections)
    TV > Amp (using 2x phono connection)
    ------------------------------------------

    Option 3 - TV doesn't pass audio or doesn't pass it with decent quality. Will require manual switching between sources. Use video connections as option 1 or 2.

    DVD > Amp (using digital co-ax or optical -identical quality, depends on
    your available connections)
    TV > Amp (using 2x phono connection)
    VCR > Amp (using 2x phono connection)
    Digibox > Amp (using 2x phono connection)
