    New 463xde / Yamaha DSP757 arrived this week.

    Installation happening on Friday !!!

    Just wanted to check the best method of connecting the system together.

    Sky box is and very old Pace - possibility of upgrading to sky+ if deemed an improvement.

    Planned approach is to connect the sky box directly into the screen
    using scart with the audio output via the amp - is this the best way to go ?

    Also current dvd has no component output so it too will be fed directly
    to the screen - again is this the best way to go


    Any input / suggestions appreciated

    Hi Ian

    With your setup (and without adding any further equipment), here are some pointers:

    1. Connect Sky to "scart 1" on the XDE. Enable RGB for "input 1" on the XDE and on the Sky box. This will also give you audio through the Pioneer's speakers.

    2. Changing to Sky+ will not make a significant difference, maybe slight, regarding picture quality. If your current sky box does not have an digital optical audio output, then a sky+ box will give you that feature to make the most of your amp.

    3. Does the dvd player have rgb output via scart? If so, then connect it to "scart 3" on the XDE. Enable RGB for "input 3" on the XDE. Connect audio from dvd player to amp via digital optical/coaxial cable.

    This should get you going.

    Regards

    Doc
