    I prefer to connect directly from the source to the TV for pictures as the less connections in the chain, the less degradation of the picture.

    I connect my digibox and DVD player directly to the TV by scart with audio connections to the amplifier. That way both benefit from RGB pictures without the inevitable degradation of routing it via the amp.

    You haven't mentioned a VCR but if you are using one that should also be connected directly to the Tv using one of the non RGB scarts on the TV

    Hi Gentlemen,

    i am also about to setup my home cinema and the advice of Hornydragon sounds very useful, i have a similar setup:

    Panasonic Plasma TV TH37PE30B
    Sony DVD Player DVP-S336
    NTL Cable Box
    and in the process of purchasing a home cinema system.

    So if i've got this correct, i should connect the Component out from the Plasma to the DVD Component (if it has the connections). Audio (coaxial or optical) from the DVD to the AMP, RGB out from the Plasma to the NTL box, and the Audio out from TV to the AMP and speakers as normal?

    If this setup is correct, then i would also like advise on the type of cabling to use:

    Component
    Audio - coaxial/optical
    Scart RGB?
    Audio from TV to AMP

    Thanks

    exactly mate for TV(Panny tuner) to amp panny very nicely put audio outputs on on the polasma so a pair of analogue phono leads is needed.
