    Folks,

    I have a Sony KD32NX200 and recently bought a Sony DAV-S550 DVD system on the cheap, however I'm a bit confused on how I should connect the DVD to the TV.

    The DAV-S550 has the following outputs on the back

    Composite
    Svideo
    Component.

    The Tv has the following inputs.

    3 X Scart (2 are RGB and 1 is Euro or Svideo)
    1 x Svideo (on the front)

    At the mo I'm using Svideo to conenct the DVD to the TV and the picture is ok. However, I have read that the Svideo out on the DVD isn't the best quality sony have ever done and that the picture is improved quite a bit by using the component out.

    Now the component out on the DVD uses 3 phono type cables all of which are video. However my TV doens't have component inputs on the back. However, the component outputs on the DVD player are labeled RGB, and I know my Tv can accept RGB via scart.

    If I bought a Component to Scart cable, would this work and would I get a picture? I'm very confused as some sites say component is RGB some say tis another better form of Svideo.

    I don't really want to waste 50 quid or whatever on a cable to find it won't work.

    Help please guys / girls.

    No you component input is a different format from RGB. For more detail look at the "sticky" thread at the top of the DVD players forum.

    Your only options are to use SVideo or to get a component to RGB converter. This will do what you are needing ... but costs £90 and I've no idea if the quality will be improved over the SVideo connection.
