    I currently have Sony DVPSS7700 DVD which has 2 scart sockets, Amstrad Sky Box and a Sony 32" WEGA TV which has 3 scart sockets. The Sky box is plugged into the DVD Player which is then plugged into the TV, thus I can view Sky programs and DVD's in RGB.

    Still with me??

    I'm after a All-In-One system, (Sony DC8), but it only has 1 scart socket, how would i connect everything up, so that i can still watch both sky and dvds using RGB, I wont be able to do SKY->DVD->Tv, but can you go DVD->SKY->TV. Or should I be looking at SCART to Composite cables if there is such a thing.

    Hope I've made myself clear.

    Cheers

    Lee.

    Welcome to the forum! :thumbsup:

    Maybe some sort of scart switcher maybe the way forward. Do a search and you will find a ton of info on this forum.

    Cheers,

    Cheers mevetts,

    I sort of came to that conclusion after my posting. Currently looking at the B-TEC QUINTRO, anyone got one, what are they like. It says that you cannot swtich it off, thus can get quite hot after prolonged use....any opinions

    Cheers

    Lee.
