    Hi Wozza,

    Connect the Sky+ via SCART and in the settings on the TV, find where you can change the input signal to RGB. I think you need input 1 for the 26GA4 but if it's not an option then use another input that does allow for RGB.

    On the DVD side, it depends what the unit has for output. If it has DVI out, connect to the TV via DVI for the best quality. If it has Component, connect it this way for the second best quality. Both these solutions need separate audio cables to be run to the TV. Next best thing is RGB which is connected via SCART which could be a problem since the Sky+ box is using the RGB input. Ways aroudn this would be to daisychain your Sky+ to the DVD player then onto the TV or get a SCART switch box.

    HTH,

    Richie.

    What is the DVD player that you're getting ?

    Anything is an improvement over the standard SCART cable you get with devices. For cheap cables go to www.tvcables.co.uk. I haven't bought from this place but I have bought a 5m IXOS SCART cable for about £25 I think it was. Can't remember the place though, sorry.

    Other cable names are Profigold, QED and Thor.

    Richie.
