    Hi Guys, still waiting for my Sammy (freemans!!!) Whaie I pull my hair out I was hoping someone could answer a few quetions.

    I will be rigging this up to a Sky box & my old Wharfedale 750, see:

    http://www.dvd.reviewer.co.uk/reviews/hardware.asp?Index=864

    Now am I right in thinking that I will get a much better picture using the S-video connection on the DVD & Sammy along with optical audio. Rather than Scart?

    I will be using scart from the Pace Sky box unfortunately!

    Any comments!:confused:

    Wharfedale 750! I had one of those my first dvd player! i loved it!
    I would use the RGB out (on SCART) from the DVD player into your display.

    Not quite sure what you mean about your sky box tho.

    SCART is just a connector standard - it can carry (although not all at the same time) composite video, S-video and RGB as well as stereo audio.)

    If your display only has one RGB capable input I would give DVD priority over tv (but maybe thats just cos i like films!)

    2nd best (but a fairly close second) would be S-Video though. On NO account should you use composite video, there really is no excuse.

    Cheers

    doh, just realised i think what you were getting at - does the 750 have a discrete S-video output (4 pin mini-din) - i cant remember!

    If so answer is still the same tho - RGB on the scart would be better

    Yes the 750 does have an S-Video socket.

    I was under the impression that s-video was superior to scart??:confused:

    as i said, SCART is just a connector standard. not a quality of video.

    RGB is better than s video which is better than composite video.

    RGB is generally carried on a scart lead
    S video on an s-video (4pin mini din) lead OR scart lead
    Composite video on a single phono to phono OR scart lead.
