    Hiya,

    I'm just awaiting delivery of a Pioneer AX5i and I've been having a look through the online manual. I have a DVD player with component out sockets and I have a Phillips 32W9617 Pixel Plus TV. The TV, to the best of my knowledge does not appear to have matching sockets for video input - I can only see Scarts, SVideo and Composite in.

    The spec lists the connections as follows.......

    1 x headphones ( mini-phone stereo 3.5 mm ) - side
    1 x composite video/audio input ( RCA phono x 3 ) - side
    1 x S-Video input ( 4 PIN mini-DIN ) - side
    2 x SCART (RGB) ( 21 PIN SCART ) - rear
    2 x SCART ( 21 PIN SCART ) - rear
    1 x SPDIF input ( RCA phono ) - rear
    1 x fixed/variable audio output ( RCA phono x 2 ) - rear
    1 x rear channel output ( RCA phono x 2 ) - rear
    1 x subwoofer output ( RCA phono ) - rear
    1 x antenna ( IEC connector ) - rear



    At the moment I'm connecting my DVD to my TV using RGB through the Scart connectors.

    I've noticed that the the AX5 has component inputs and I'm just wondering what the best method of linking them all together is? Am I better off just sticking with the direct RGB connection I currently have (obviously using the amp for sound) and missing out the video inputs on the amp altogether?

    Thanks

    check the specs on your TV - it might support component via scart !!

    if so use something like this:
