    I was advised in a previous thread to connect my E55 to Pany AV4c using component leads. I read somewere else that I would also need scart to AV4 to get the sound, and in order to get some other functions which I cannot recall.
    Page 45 of the manual tells me that "Scart RGB and Component video cannot be connected at the ame time to AV4 as Scart has priority and AV4c cannot be selected"
    Hopefully someone will take the time to clarify this.
    As an afterthought would there be anything to be gained by connecting to AV2 at the same time as AV4c.

    Component cables don't carry sound. ALthough you might not be able to select scart for video input it will probably still accept the sound signal.

    AV4 and set AV4 as Q-link for DVB recordings if you want to do that
    (digi box VCR scart is composite use digi box TV scart for RGB and better PQ (watched through E55 allowing for live pause etc with RAM disc loaded)
