    Hi All

    I've just purchased the Denon DHT500SD to use in conjuction with a new Panasonic TH37PW7 Plasma screen. I have a freeview box going to the Plasma's VGA port via a JS Converter box with sound being fed to the denon via the optical input. The Denon is going to the Plasma by the component output to a component terminal board for DVD playback etc.

    Now the problem that I have is that I also have an Xbox with the advanced RGB Scart lead, now I can swap (for the moment) with the Freeview box to get a picture output to the plasma screen but to get sound it has to be routed to the Denon. As far as I am aware the Denon's RGB is input only so how am I going to get sound from the Xbox. The only thing I can think of is to get an Xbox compenent lead and feed the audio by the Phono plugs to the Audio in on the denon and use a component switch to go between the DVD output and the Xbox.

    Is this the only solution or am I missing something really simple here?

    Thanks for any replies !!

    Does the denon not have another Optical Input, because if you've got the advanced scart for the x-box then you should be able to use the optical audio out from it
