    Hi,

    Was just wondering, what will give the best results when connecting a DVD player to a Toshiba 27WL46 LCD flat panel - quality 21-pin SCART or DVI-D ?

    Sorry if it's an obvious one, I'm new to all this ! :rolleyes:


    Many thanks,

    DVI should be preferrable - though there aren't many DVD players with DVI or HDMI outputs.

    DVI is straight digital from the disc to the tv. Scart would need a conversion from Digital to Analogue (Disc to Cable) then Analogue to Digital (Cable to TV).

    Take a look at...

    Denon 1910 - DVI
    Denon 2910 - DVI, HDMI
    Denon 3910 - DVI, HDMI
    Panasonic S97 - HDMI
    Samsung HD745 - DVI
    Samsung HD945 - HDMI
    Cambridge Audio DV79 - Don't know which connection.

    You can get HDMI to DVI adaptors for not very much. Only problem with these is that they mainly use the Faroudja 23xx scaling/deinterlacing chipset which has an inherent macroblocking problem on some flat panels. Panasonic Plasmas are supposed to be bad although I've not seen it.

    All of the DVD players can upscale to 720p or 1080i with the Samsungs able to do 768p.

    Richie.
