    I have recently puchased a panasonic scm-t1 home cinema system and a panasonic 28inch PL4 WS TV. For some strange reason I can get TV sound feeding back into the Home cinema unit without using phono plugs. Does this mean that my scart lead / TV AV connection is multi directional ? E.G The Scart Cable doesn't just send pictures to the tv but it also recieve sound from the TV. The manual says that to recieve TV audio you need to connect phono leads from the back of the TV to the Home cinema unit but I can get it through my single scart lead. Is this normal? and is it ok to continue?

    Thanks

    Dave

    scart is a bi-directional connector, you can cut off the undeeded pins and make it a directional one!

    Yes it does. By default, most/all SCART cables (and the sockets they plug into) provide both input and output lines.

    A poorly sheiled socket can cause feed back I have had this trouble, but havent yet got round to butchering a cable!
