Well, I looked but I couldn't see an exact parallel to my situation. I have a Sony 7700 DVD player, and a giant 36 inch 4:3 Toshiba television. It's coming up for 7 years old, but it's so good and so big, I haven't been able to justify replacing it with a newer widscreen or plasma (yet). In widescreen, it's about equivalent to a 32" TV anyway. However, I've always noticed that the colours from my DVD player look a bit muted. Because there are only two Scarts inputs in the back of the TV, the guy who set it up for me four years ago put the scart from the DVD into the Sky box (since upgraded to Sky +), and another scart takes the signal from there into my TV. I should say that my TV isn't compatible with RGB scarts. It strikes me, after all these years, that maybe there's a better way. Should I use S-video leads instead to connect the DVD to the TV (both have the correct outputs and inputs)? If so, should I do this via my Pioneer 2011? And if so, why is it better to put the S-video leads through an amplifier/receiver rather than directly from the DVD to the TV?
