    Hi Can anyone please advise on the following connection issue as the response I received from Denon support is not correct IMHO.

    I have a
    Panasonic 42" PWD6 plasma c/w scart & component boards
    Xbox

    looking to purchase sky+ & Denon DHT 550.

    When i asked Denon support they suggested the following

    "I would run scart direct to the TV from both devices.

    I would use optical from the Sky box to the 550 for audio"

    He means sky & the denon.

    I would have thought that the component connection is the best for the dvd.
    The xbox with advanced scart cable plugs directly into the plasma.
    The question is concerning the video connection from the sky+ box.
    How does this connect? Not having sky I dont know what the connections are but i think it has s-video & scarts. What would s-video be like?

    Any help would be most appreciated

    Thanks

    Paul

    Sky+ has outputs in RGB, S-video and composite, RGB is your best picture. You could consider buying a scart switch box for your XBox and Sky+ inputs. Are alternatively some people I believe daisy chain by connecting the XBox to Sky+ video output scart socket, then Sky+'s tv scart output connected to the tv.

    Component is your best option to connect the dvd player to the tv without a shadow of a doubt.

    Hi. I have just bought the Denon DHT-500SD Home Theatre System. I have connected it using a scart cable and the DVD is superb. Unfortunately I can not manage to get the TV (Sony digital TV) sound through the theatre system. What shall I do? Thank you in advance for any help you may provide.
