    Hello all,
    I have my PC connected to my sony crt tv by an s-video lead into the front of the tv.However, in order to get rid of the unsightly wires I was wondering if there was a way round it without compromising quality. I have seen scart sockets with s-video inputs on them and wondered if i would get the same picture using one of those to the back of the TV? Any advice would be greatfully appreciated.
    Cheers
    Doug :)

    Check the TV specs in your user manual and see if one of its scarts is s-video capable.

    Hi Doug,

    As Jaycee says, check out the TV specs to see if it can take and s-video signal over scart. If it can, the quality of the signal should be exactly the same as s-video to s-video cable you are using.

    You have a couple of options for connections, either a direct scart to s-video cable. Or use an intermediate scart to s-video adaptor if you already have a spare scart cable.

    Check out the numerous cable suppliers in the links section to find some examples. Heres one's that I am talking about.

    Cheers

    Andy
