    Hello Steve,

    Scart is just the name of the 21-pin general purpose connector you find on most AV equipment these days. Scart provides for composite, S-, or RGB video connections as well as stereo audio and some control signals.

    The best way to connect your DVD to your TV is via Scart using RGB. If your DVD can't output RGB, or if your TV can't accept it, then use S-video instead. You can either continue to use the Scart lead or you can use the dedicated S-video connector (the round multi-pin one).

    The coaxial digital connection is for audio only. You can use this to connect your DVD to a dolby digital / DTS receiver to listen to multi-channel surround sound.
