    You ought to stick with Scart to Scart assuming the player and TV both support RGB via scart.

    If you connect a Scart output to an s-video input you are only getting a composite video signal into the s-video input on the TV. In order to output true S-video from RGB you would need a transcoder (JS electronics one of the forum sponsors sell one for about £70, or maplins do one for about £60 - I know from experience though the maplin one only supports PAL format signals, strange things happen to NTSC).

    So unless you want to fork out cash, or your TV doesn't accept RGB via scart, i'd say scart-scart is your best option.

    Unless your scart output on your player can out put an S-video signal.
