    DVD Player

    Digital or Optical cable from DVD to Denon for audio
    Component video cables from DVD to TV for picture.

    On Digital Box

    Fully wired scart cable from digibox to whichever scart input on TV accepts RGB input.

    Scart from second scart on digibox to VCR.

    VCR

    Scart from VCR to spare scart input on TV.

    Analogue Audio.

    There are two ways to get the sound from digibox and VCR.
    1) Pair of phono cables from VCR and Digibox to amp.
    2) Leave sound to run through existing scart leads and run pair of phono cables from audio output on back of TV into amp.

    I use 1) as the audio outputs on my JVC produces terrible sound but I think most people use method 2).

    Hope this helps

    Ok, try this for starters

    Dvd to TV AV1 via RGB Scart lead or if your TV has Component Video Inputs (3 Phono leads) use these.

    Dvd to Amp via digital coaxial lead or optical lead, personally I prefer coaxial.

    Amp to TV via either SVHS lead or normal composite lead (to use the amps onscreen menus for setup)

    I´m not sure about the Ondigital box, we havent got them over here in Spain. You could connect it to AV1 on the TV if youre able to use the Component Video Inputs for the Dvd instead of RGB scart.

    The video when you get it should go into any spare AV input on the TV.

    In terms of picture quality RGB & Component are the best followed by S-Video and then Composite.

    I´m sure others will offer other advice.

    cheers
