    Hello

    The kids are in tears, my tea is still in the oven from last night...

    Can someone please assist, I'm sure its quite simple, but I guess maybe I am too....

    Hitachi 42PD5200 plasma
    Sony SR4W DVD Home Cinema
    Sky Digital

    Sky into Plasma through the only scart on TV

    OK so far...

    According to my Hitachi quick guide I can connect my DVD through "Scart to 6 phono lead" into Input AV2 on plasma.

    I bought "Scart to 6 phono" - it has 2 sets of red, white, and yellow. So what is / where is R,G,B,Video,Audio-L,Audio-R? Have I bought the wrong cable?

    Is there an easier way to connect DVD without loosing quiality?

    Any advice hugely appreciated, you will be saving a 15 year marriage, numerous plates, the dog, 2 kids and another Indian takeaway.

    your dvd player has a scart input, connect the sky output to dvd and connect your dvd via scart cable to dvd?

    if that doesn't work, I need to know what kind of connection is there other than your single scart connection

    Yes you need a scart to component/rgb cable you have bought scart to composite/audio in/out they have red/green/blue rca`s on the end

    I think this would do you

    then just a straight stereo interconnect from dvd player to plasma if u want sound through it

    then sky into your av4 scart

    Great, thanks very much for the help mate.

    Only thing, re:

    "then just a straight stereo interconnect from dvd player to plasma if u want sound through it"

    Where does this go from (dvd) / to (plasma)? Could you point me to that via a link please?

    Many thanks again!
