    I am just purchasing a Sony STR-DE685 along with a Toshiba 220e Multiregion DVD player. I want to know hoe the hell to connect this to the TV which has Two scart sockets.

    The amps connection pics are here

    http://www.crutchfield.com/cgi-bin/...20&id=morephotos&pi=2&i=158STRE685&display=XL


    Here is the DVD Spec

    Component Video Output (Y, Pr & Pb)
    SCART (RGB) Output
    S-Video Output
    Composite Video Output
    DIgital Audio Output (Coaxial & Optical)
    Supply voltage: Auto-sensing 110VAC to 240VAC,



    I know that component video is best but I am totally confused with all this connection stuff and would like to know what im doing before the kit comes......


    Basically I would like to know what cables I need to connect this stuff up in a good way


    I am very thankfull who anyone that can help

    Cheers

    Hi

    Easiest way is to get yourself an RGB scart cable, connect the dvd to the TV (usually AV1) via this, set the output of the dvd player to RGB. You´ll also need a digital cable to connect from the dvd player to the amplifier, either coaxial digital or an optical cable. Then you´ll need to set the audio output of the dvd player to Bitstream.

    For cables have a look here:

    www.hificables.co.uk

    www.chord.co.uk

    Component Video connections would be best but unless your TV has the relevant inputs you´re best to stick with RGB scart.

    Do I need a SCART to SCART RGB Video Only cable or a standard Scart lead with video and audio. Would there be any performance gain wth video only???

    Thanks again

    A fully wired 21 pin scart lead will do the job. Whether there´s any difference between a video only cable and a normal scart cable, not sure, you´ll have to try and decide that one yourself!

    Just looking at the bottom two. You could take the S-Video from the dvd to the amp using the 121AV or 156AV and then use the 135AV from amp to TV. This is really if you have other sources connected to the amp and want to use it as the central hub (video switching).

    You could just get the 135AV (S-Video to Scart) and connect from the dvd player straight to the TV (have to select S-Video on the TV most likely). Either this or an RGB Scart will do the job nicely. The choice is yours.
