I use my Sony STR1070 to get surround sound from tv, satellite and a dvd player. For video the extra boxes are connected straight to the TV in a chain via scart sockets. On the back of the Sony some of the inputs accept s-video as well as 3-phono, and there is an S-video 'monitor' output which can be connected to the tv with an S-video to scart lead. This will allow me to connect my digital camera to the s-video in on the front of the Sony and hopefully achieve a higher quality signal than using the phono's on the front of my tv. My question is, whilst I am about it will I be better off connecting all my devices to the Sony via scart-to-Svideo or whatever is relevant and then watching everything through the Sony's s-video output? Is s-video better than scart or just different? My tv has two scarts so the s-video connection I am making for the benefit of my camcorder need not be instead of the existing scart arrangment. Keeping these old leads will also retain the facility to watch tv without the receiver on. However is it worth buying the extra leads to connect sat/dvd etc to the receiver via s-video as well?
