    Hey,

    Ok I've got a Philips 28PW6006 TV and a Pioneer DV350 DVD player. Now, can someone explain exactly what progressive scan is? I know it's better quality but how exactly do you go about receiving progressive scan from your DVD's? I doubt my TV can handle progressive scan as it's not top spec by a long shot.

    Another question I've got is about cables for audio and video. I want to get the following QED scart for video:

    I'm only going to be using stereo sound at the moment, but I'm confussed as to what cables I can use. Would this be ok?:

    Sorry for all the questions, I just don't want to buy this stuff to find out it's not going to work out very well.

    Cheers,
    Chris

    All these questions have been answered loads of times on these forums and u may not get many replies. U also need to give more information like what amp and speakers you intend to use with the DVD.

    qed cables are very good but very expensive so pairing them with mediocre equipment will not show a dramatic result.

    Do a few searches on here and then post back.

    Thanx for the info.

    Well I'm going to be using the tv's speakers at the moment. But I'm not sure if the lead I mentioned for sound will work...doesn't there need to be 2 phonos for left and right? It seems as if there is only one on that lead.

    Surely I would get a better picture using QED leads though? Or are you saying that the difference between a cheaper version wouldn't be very noticeable?

    I had thought of getting an all in one scart to scart solution for video and sound. Maybe that would be a better option?

    those phono cables u showed do have 2 phonos, its they way they are diplayed, it shows just one end!

    Now this bit is important. TV speakers are usually ----- well crap.

    So to get the best from your system u need to enter the magical world of HOME CINEMA. Go to your nearest WHSMITHS and look at a few of the magazines. You will need an amp and 5 speakers plus a sub woofer = 5.1 = dolby digital = bliss. But is costs money.

    Waste of time pairing the cables u mention just to a TV and DVD.

    You should be using a SCART at the moment with output on DVD set to RGB, this will give u a good picture and stereo sound. Then adjust bass, treble on the TV to suit.

    As I said search on here and you will be reading all night.

    Well I'm using the tv speakers because surround sound systems cost quite a bit for a half decent one and at the moment I don't want to be spending money on that.

    So I'm thinkíng this scart lead should be sufficient:

    http://www.empiredirect.co.uk/productdetailsnew.asp?modelcode=QED-AV2110

    Video and sound so that'll do. It doesn't mention anything about RGB but do all scart leads support RGB?

    One more question what is the best quality for video? Scart or S-Video?

    I can vouch for it as I have 2. these will last you your lifetime.

    You must do a search on here and it will give you all u need.

    SCART or SQART as QED call them will give you the best picture quality when u select RGB but the TV must all have the facility to receive RGB. RGB = RED, GREEN, BLUE which we know is used to make up all colours.

    Best quaility

    COMPONENT, RGB, S-VIDEO and then composite.

    NB a scart will take RGB and composite and even s-video.

    Now you will have to do a search as this gets deeper and deeper

    bye now.

    I think you made a small mistake in
    grading the type of connection.

    I suggest RGB,Component,S-video and composite.

    I think you would be very challenge to
    notice the difference between Component and RGB.

    There will always be a conversion between component and RGB in your
    signal chain, the question is just where will it be done best.

    The signal from the DVD disk is in component format, The signal to the TV tube is RGB.
    So the conversion is in the TV or in the DVD player, I don't think anybody can say for shure where it will be done best!
