    To all you techies and those that have learnt the hard way I would appriciate some help being a rookie on the following best connections.

    1. Connect sky straight to av1 on pe30, and e85 to av4 on pe30
    2. Connect sky straight to av1 on pe30 and e85 to av4c on pe30 with component leads (also scart to av4 for the sound)
    3.Connect sky to e85 then e85 to av4 and or av4c on pe30 as above.
    4.Connect sky to e85 then e85 to av1.
    5. S-Video, not even started to think of this one.
    6. Any other options.

    To say I am getting confused is a under statement, all I want is best connection to watch and record from sky and dvb broadcasts and to watch dvd`s.

    Is it me or would it have been a lot better for a set of Audio/Video outputs on the back of the pe30 as well as just on the front, thus saving a scart socket ??

    Digibox wants a scart splitter to give two RGB scart outputs, one goes to AV1, t'other to RGB in on the E85.

    E85 to Plasma component and scart for audio - this will also give you a basic composite output from the plasma back to the E85 using the same lead if you wanna record Freeview (why there is no RGB out I do not know)

    Liam,
    thanks for your reply, I thought there would be an other way to do this.
    Can you recommened a good scart splitter, as I can only find "scart switches".
    I take it that I am just splitting the signal to both inputs and if so will a "scart switch" device do the same job or are they only capable of switching the signal.

    Look forward to your reply or from anybody else to this plea for help.
    Yours mmrb.

    We've got quite a well built amplified scart splitter that we've not ever had problems with. It's obviously not gonna be the same as running direct but there's no more or less loss than using a scart switcher. £70 quid though...
