    I have a Goodmans dvd home cinema system, the chap at the shop told me I would be able to play the normal telly programs through the front left and right speakers by just using scart connections but it dosen't.
    I have one scart from telly to DVD, one scart from telly to VCR and another scart from VCR to sky digi box.

    I can get normal telly sound through the speakers if I connect the DVD to telly with the two audio out jack plugs but I am thinking of buying a wide screen telly and the ones I have looked at don't seem to have the two stereo audio out connections.

    Most t.v manufacturers now provide separate audio out connections on the rear of the t.v. If not, you can always use a SCART - 2RCA lead to connect to your Goodmans Hi-Fi.

    adapt the usual response given below to suit your set-up. Note the 2x phono from the tv to the amp to carry the tv audio.
    -----------------

    Various ways to connect depending on what you think is acceptable.

    option 1 - RGB for both DVD and digibox but need to record via the RF.
    Audio carried from TV to Amp and DVD to amp (TV passes audio from vcr and
    digibox)

    DVD > Digibox VCR scart ( use scart lead, set DVD to output RGB)
    Digibox > TV (use scart lead into RGB scart socket)
    Video > TV (scart lead into composite scart socket - Don't use an expensive cable, it would be wasted)
    Aerial > digibox > vcr > TV

    DVD > Amp (using digital co-ax or optical -identical quality, depends on your available connections)
    TV > Amp (using 2x phono connection)

    -----------------------------------------

    Option 2 - RGB for digibox and s-video for DVD. Allows recording via the scart. Audio the same as above

    DVD > TV (scart into s-video scart)
    Digibox > TV (scart into RGB scart)
    Digibox > VCR (composite scart - Don't use expensive cable for this one)
    Aerial > digibox > vcr > TV

    DVD > Amp (using digital co-ax or optical -identical quality, depends on your available connections)
    TV > Amp (using 2x phono connection)
    ------------------------------------------

    Option 3 - TV doesn't pass audio or doesn't pass it with decent quality. Will require manual switching between sources. Use video connections as option 1 or 2.

    DVD > Amp (using digital co-ax or optical -identical quality, depends on
    your available connections)
    TV > Amp (using 2x phono connection)
    VCR > Amp (using 2x phono connection)
    Digibox > Amp (using 2x phono connection)
