    Hi; Apologies for the length of this but want to give as much info as I can....

    Just taken delivery of a AVR-2105 to fit in with some existing kit and am looking to check how I can get the best possible video output from the kit I have. (below)
    Lecson DVD1000, 4KUS DVR-230, Sky, Toshiba TV - 2987DB, PS2, XBox

    Lecson and 4KUS have RGB and Component outputs.
    Sky has RGB output
    Both consoles have scort (tho Xbox is preferred for connection and has RGB with digital audio out).
    The TV has 3 scart inputs, of which one is RGB and also has SVideo.
    The receiver has SVideo and Component in/output.

    As Sky will go into the 4KUS and I'll drop the PS2 from the equation, that really leaves me with the following....
    Lecson (component/RGB outputs)
    4KUS (component/RGB outputs )
    Xbox (RGB only).
    TV Scart (2 std, 1 RGB), SVideo.

    As the TV has no component inputs, I wonder if I have to stick with scart for the video or is there some way of improving this. How do I get the best video form this set up?

    I've also got 2 other quick questions
    1. do all scarts offer RBG as standard and can anyone recommend good (RGB) scart for £10-£20?
    2. can anyone recommend an RGB switcher so (if I do stick with scart) I can
    take advantage of RGB on all the outputs?

    Any help, greatly appreciated...

    im no expert but what id suggest:

    Lecson and 4KUS to the component 1 and 2 on the Reciever.
    XBox RGB to Component 3 on the reciever using a JS RGB>YUV converter

    but then there is the problem of getting from the component out on the reciever to RGB on the TV..... hmmmm

    if someone made a YUV>RGB then you'd be sorted with this. If they dont then im stuck.

    as for RGB leads: as far as i know you need an RGB scart lead and they are also directional.
