    Hi,

    My TV (Toshiba 28" widescreen) has one RGB Scart socket and one AV/S-Video Scart socket and no side panel input.

    The problem is I'd like to be able to connect Sky, my Philips DVD player and my X-Box to the TV all via RGB. Or at least to connect two of them through RGB and one through S-Video.

    I know there's all sort of Scart switch boxes available, but are there any which don't noticeably degrade the picture and sound quality? It would also need all the inputs to be well isolated so that if I'm using my DVD player and I happen to leave Sky turned on, I don't get interference. You're probably thinking why should I get interference if the switcher is set to the DVD players input, but that's exactly what used to happen with the (admittedly) cheap Scart switcher I used to have.

    Thanks in advance,
    Simon :)

    there is a Joytech one that supposedly won a HCC award for best accessory.

    I'm hoping its soon-to-be-released component version will be the one for me.

    Nice and thin and shiny silver (or black) - so it'll go with the rest of your stuff.
