DVD connection Nightmare...Can Anyone Help?


I am trying to connect it to my TV/satellite system.

@Ideally - I want to be able to have surround sound on the TV as well as on the DVD.

And ....I am gonna cry in a minute!!

I have purchased 2 types of SCART leads as I was unsure which ones I needed.

One type - scart end on both ends

The other - scart one end - 3 plugs or jacks (red yellow and white) on the other.

My TV only has 2 scart sockets.

My satellite system has 2 scarts and 2 plugs/jacks - one red one white.

I have at various stages today - had DVD picture no sound - DVD with surround sound...

TV with Surround sound - but unable to get the DVD picture.

TV picture - sound

TV no picture - but sound

DVD - no picture but sound

TV no sound but DVD sound...

At various points I have had it connected via and video and not via a video....

Can anyone out there provide me with totally idiot proof assistance?

Please ?

by the way - am not at all tecchie! So if you can help can you treat me as a 5 year old and avoid any complicated jargon!

I can just about cope with plugs and jacks and scarts! once you start talking about Rf, AV's and god knows what you will have lost me!
