Hitachi PD5200 connections Scart, Component, Svideo ?


Standard Member
Too much too connect! Have a Hitachi HTDK185 Freeview/DVD currently into the Scart but still want to connect a Sky box, old VCR and eventually a Hard Disk based DVD recorder !
42PD5200 has 2 x component and Svideo as well as Scart. Would a Scart to component cable be better than a Scart to Scart ? And Scart is better than Svideo ?
If I connect the VCR with Svideo and use Scart to component I should then have enough but any other suggestions ?

Why not daisy chain the VCR through the SKY box? So long as you don' want to watch them both at once you'll be fine!! :)
