    Hi, I have ordered one of these HD ready 37 inch LCD TV's, expected delivery 19th August. I am puzzled, though, by one thing. The specs sheet for the TV is here:

    http://www.p4c.philips.com/files/3/37pf5520d_10/37pf5520d_10_pss_eng.pdf

    It clearly says that it has component YPbPr connection, but looking at the diagram of the connectors, I can't see the 3 red, green and blue phono connectors usually associated with component.

    My DVD recorder does have these and that's how I would want to connect them.....does anyone have any ideas which connector I would use on the TV to get component input?

    Any thoughts on the TV in general?

    Thanks a lot!

    A bit of research on here has shown that the DVI and component share a socket by using an adapter.

    OK, aside from that, any thoughts on the TV in general?

    Cheers :)

    Hi Ian1969uk

    I may be wrong, but I think you might be able to get component input through the DVI-I socket.

    According to the Philips blurb on the link you posted it says "It has a universal connection for both analogue YPbPr and uncompressed Digital connection of DVI or HDMI supporting HDCP."

    Hope that helps.

    Thanks snark. Had just figured that out as you can see by looking at previous posts on here.

    What do you think of the TV in general though?

    Looks really nice Ian

    Where did you buy it from?

    One other thing about the TV though. Where is the S/PDIF? Couldn't find it on pictures? Any idea?

    Hmm...it's coming from Littlewoods online. Got it when they had a hundred quid off, so it was £1599. Littlewoods then give 10% cash back so effectively it will end up being £1459, as opposed to the RRP of £1699.

    I got it from there also to take advantage of 12 months interest free and Buy Now Pay May 2006 :thumbsup:

    Not sure with regards to the S/PDIF, the tech specs clearly state it but I also can't see it on the pictures.

    Anyway, I get 7 days from delivery to decide whether to keep it, so there's no risk involved really.
