    Hopeing someone can help?

    Here is my kit
    1.Sony DAV-SB500W DVD/Surround. One RGB Scart out (none in) no component or optical but has S-video

    2. JCV LC32GA5E. One RGB Scart, Component, S-video and I assume a "generic scart" input in addition (dont think its RGB)

    3. Sky Plus.

    Need to hook the whole lot the up, What im thinking of doing is this:

    Sony DVD RGB Scart to RGB Scart input1 on TV

    Sky Plus Scart to none RGB Scart on TV

    Sound direct from sky plus to DVD

    I know it will work, but will not get scart RGB from the sky box, only the DVD? does anyone have a way that I can get the best possible set up with the limited connections I have?

    Was thinking about using the S-video from the DVD to the TV thus leaving the RGB scart input free to accept the Sky Plus feed? but dont know if S-video is as good.

    Any help would be gratefully recieved!!
    Cheers
    Kier

    you want rgb scart from sky to tv.
    then s-video from sony cinema kit to tv( you only need to get picture to tv and s-video will be better than standard scart)
    lastly skyplus sound to sony cinema kit.
