New PDP-436xde connection advice



Hi all,

I am new to the forum, just got my new Pio, SWEET :) I just want some connection advice. I hooked it up real quick last night, SKY+ through Scart to input1 and Sony DAV-DZ700 with wireless rears via scart to Input3. Not sure how to get the best out of the connections? Currently I am feeding the sound Optical out of the Tuner box into the Sony but the sound aint that great.

I could feed the sound direct out of the SKY+ box straight into the SONY, I think the sound will be better then. Also, I would like some advice on Component connection. Could I do away with the scart connection from the SONY to the PIO then? only disadvantage I see there is that the DVD sound will not come through the TV speakers.

Any suggestions?

Use component cable for the Sony but keep the SCART as well (connected to input 2).

In setup menu for input 2 select component as the input type, the media box will still receive audio via the SCART lead.
