    It looks like I'm going to go for the Screenplay 4805 :smashin:

    I want to connect my Sky box, and a DVD player to it. Would it be best to connect the Sky box with a Scart to Component lead, and the DVD player with S-Video?

    Hi Jeremy,ive connected my neighbours as; Sky+ box to s-video and pioneer dvd player through component/ in progressive scan mode. This seems to be the best way around as you benefit from progressive scan on the dvd if yours is capable, and youre not using converter leads.
    His whole set up is so good that im on the verge of buying a 4805 myself :smashin:
    Hope this helps,
    Clyde.

    My sky box hasn't got an S-Video connection.

    Scart to VGA cable for Sky (set to RGB). Use supplied converter for VGA to M1-DA.
    Component for DVD. (Progressive not so important as the 4805 has a very good de-interlacer onboard.) Leaves S-video for playstation, camcorder etc.
