    Im a bit of a newbie when it comes to all this, so go easy :laugh:

    Ok I have a shuttle SS51G to connect to my Panasonic TX32PS5. I don't have an amp yet, but the TV has an onboard dolby decoder (however good that is I dont know). I have SPDIF out which sounds promising but am unsure exactly what the best way to connect it is and exactly what cable I need. Previously I have just used my Dell Inspiron 8600 using a component cable for the video and 3.5mm phono cable for the audio. This doesn't strike me as the best way of doing things but everything seems so daunting, hence im looking to cut some corners for a quick reply :lease:

    Is Svideo better than component? Do I just use a digital toslink cable from shuttle to TV? :suicide:

    Do you mean composite or component? composite is a single yellow cable for video with a red & white for audio, component is three for video.

    Order of quality is;
    Composite
    S-video
    RGB
    Component


    does this help?

    Hey a familiar face :)

    I have previously been using composite in that case.

    I'd recommend getting yourself a Radeon Graphics card and connecting via s-video or you could wait until the new All-in-Wonders are out as I have heard that they will have an RGB scart out
