    Hi everyone, some advice for a beginner would be much appreciated.

    I've set up my system as follows

    Sony DAV S550 > Panny PW6 via component to vga (using BNC monitor cable with RCA adaptors)

    PS2 > DAV via optical

    NTL box > DAV via scart to RCA

    Basically everything is chained through the DAV > Panny

    My problem is: although I'm able to get sound + vision from the DAV DVD, I can only get sound from the NTL+PS2. Is there some issue around upconversion from these inputs to the component outs? Or am I being a twonk & missing something obvious?

    Any help much appreciated, particularly as the Grand Prix starts in 3 hrs!!

    :)

    are you sure a DAVS550 will up convert video to component, (Composite for cable will look hoorendous) get a JS tech RGB>VGA box and daisy chain PS2 and ntl together and use DAVS for sound only

    I think I've made the mistake of assuming because the DAV had relevant inputs & outputs it would do the conversion. I'm now doubting that!

    I'm guessing the route you suggest would involve combining the VGA from the DAV DVD & the NTL/PS2 Converter chain?

    keep DAV connected to component (optional component board) connect PS2>Ntl Digital (VCR scart) and Ntl (TV scart)>JS RGB>VGA converter to builtin VGA input on panel.
    NOTE: you cant mix RGBHV (VGA) and Component (YUV,YPbPr) on the built-in 15pin D-sub (VGA connection)
    JS RGB>VGA only works with RGB devices (will need RGB Scart cable for PS2)

    Many thanks for this info hornydragon. Off to spend some more money (gulp) & do a temporary hookup on the old CRT.

    This reminds me of costing for building works - think of a budget then double it!

    Cheers
