    Help needed please on HC setup:

    AMP: Yamaha DSP-AX620
    DVD: Toshiba SD-210EB
    TV: Toshiba 32Z13B

    I 'was' going to do the following:

    1 - connect DVD to TV @ SCART to SCART (for video)
    2 - connect DVD to AMP @ OPTICAL to OPTICAL (for audio)

    but

    3 - the Yamaha AMP diagrams show COMP-VID out from DVD to COMP-VID in on AMP, then COMP-VID (MON OUT) on AMP to COMP-VID in on TV.

    Query........

    if I do 1 + 2, I won't see the AMP setup menus on the TV; is this a problem with the Yamaha DSP-AX620?

    is it worth putting the DVD video signal through the AMP?

    if I do 3 I'd have to use a SCART on the TV as it doesn't have COMP-VID input. would this work?

    or would using S-VID from AMP to TV SCART be better?

    \_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_

    if I add a VCR to the mix (Sony SLV-SE800G):

    would I benefit replacing the low 'spec' AERIAL-coax-VCR-coax-TV connection with an AMP-VCR-AMP setup using PHONO for audio in/out and for video in/out using SCART (VCR) to PHONO (AMP) or SCART (VCR) to S-VID (AMP) conversion leads?

    also, would aerial RF input go to TV or VCR (I suspect the latter)?

    Not really a problem but for the initial setup perhaps helpfull.

    No. A direct connection, using SCART - SCART with RGB enabled, should be the best for your setup.

    No. Component and RGB are not compatible.

    Not a good idea as you need to stick to one video signal. AV amps usually cannot convert from one to another format.

    You can of course connect the VCR to the amp, too, thus getting e.g. Dolby Pro-Logic. Depending on what adapter cables you use you can connect the video directly to the TV or via the AV amp.

    Aerial into the VCR only but if you want to watch normal broadcast without turning on the VCR you must also connect the coaxial cable between VCR and TV.

    many thanks for the pointers.........

    I'll aim to do the following:

    DVD video> SCART < TV
    DVD audio > PHONO < amp

    Aerial > COAX < VCR > SCART< TV
    VCR audio > PHONO < amp

    leaving only one more query - what is the difference between the 2 SCART sockets that appear on the back of a TV?

    Looks alright to me. :)

    The difference in the SCARTs are the video signals they support, i.e. usually only one input supports RGB and perhaps the other one S-Video, both should however support composite, too.
    Check from the TV's manual. (DVD should of course hook up to the RGB capable SCART to get the best pic)

    DVD audio > PHONO < amp

    That PHONO should be a digital coaxial for multi-channel...

    many thanks to all.....

    I'm up and running with it all working. All I've got to do is work out the room size and speaker size to input into the amp then all the tweaking will be finished.

    Oh - one query, should the rear speakers go on the wall/stands or are they OK on the floor (Mission M7DS)?
