    Bit of a newbie question...:blush:

    I'm planning to get an HS10 (my first PJ!), so for the first time I'll have two output devices - Loewe Aconda and PJ. Currently Sky+ and DV88 go directly to the Aconda via RGB SCARTs. Cable runs: Sky+ to TV = 2m; Sky+ to PJ = 15m+; DV88 to TV and PJ = ~10m. So...

    I've got SCART and S-video out on Sky+, and SCART and Component out on the DV88 (soon to be upgraded to DV89)

    What's the best way to connect both to both to get best quality? Some combination of John Sim's converters? Go via the DAVE on the A22?

    Any suggestions most appreciated

    To do it the logical way you'll need a switch box and a distribution amp.

    I use a quattro switch box and a Keene electronics SCART distribution amplifier. This combination will pass through RGB signals to give the best quality.Works well in my system.

    There are cheaper manual switches available as well as other remotely controlable ones.
