    Just ordered one of these. My DVD player only has a S-Video output. What's the best way of connecting the DVD to the Plasma?. I guess the options are:
    1) S-Video -> SCART
    2) S-Video -> Component

    Which connection is likely to give the best picture?.

    Also, can anyone recommend a good quality cable?. Is this any good (for option 1)

    Thanks

    that cable says it is directional...the scart is video out, you would need the other way round. Shame not to get a new dvd with a nice new screen and make the most of it

    Thanks - well spotted. I'll look for another one.

    I will get a new DVD player in the near future. Spent about £400 on the current system (Pioneer DCS-303 home cinema system) a couple of years go. May be I'll use this for a few more months.

    When is Blu-Ray/HD DVD coming out?.
