    Just taken delivery of my tosh 42wh18b (woohoo!) and am trying to connect the sd110e DVD player that came with it.

    Please don't shout at me for asking such a stoopid question, but can I use what i assume are some phono leads which came with the player (coloured yellow, red and white and labelled video, audio and audio respectively) to connect the component outs on the dvd to the ins on the TV, or do I need specific comonent leads?

    I suspect not, but they both have three plugs so I thought I would ask...:)

    cheers

    these are leads for composite vid (yellow) and left right sound (white and red).

    Theres nothing to stop you using these for component vid however, but I decided to buy some high quality interconnects from Richer sounds for this.

    Am running the DVD to my amp (3802) then to my TV - Tosh 56WHO8B

    The supplied leads work fine with my Toshiba 210 for component, so I see no point in spending extra. Surely it is a digital signal so it either gets through correct or not?

    Component video from a dvd to tv is NOT digital. It's a very analogue signal.

    The use of high quality 75ohm co-ax cable terminated well is all that's required. This doesn't have to be expensive but should be done correctly.
