hi to all , just joined this forum today , it looks a very informative site , i'm hopeful i can get some answers to a few questions i have as i delve into this new world of hd and lcd (new to me anyway !) , and who knows i might be able to offer some advice to others.... anyway i'll fire away , at present i have cable digital , a sony rdr860 dvd/hdd recorder , a db500s satellite receiver , a lg surround sound system all connected via a monster mv3 scart control centre to my crt tv. all connections at present are using thor and cambridge audio scart leads (except for the sound which is coaxial from dvd/hdd recorder to lg sound system). i'm about to buy a samsung le40r74bdx 40" lcd tv which i will want to connect to the system using a hdmi lead. my question is , should i still use the scart from the dvd/hdd to connect to the scart switcher and then keep the scart output to the tv.then i would assume i could use a hdmi lead from dvd/hdd to lcd tv for when i wanted to watch a dvd at an upscaled rate ? does this sound like the best solution , or does anybody have any suggestions ? thanks in advance , ste.
