    Hi im probably just missing something really obvious, Ive connected up my pio dv-575A via component to my pv500 and everyones said u will have improved picture quality if I put my sky+ through the dvd player aswell. I have 1 problem though, I cant get it 2 work :suicide: there is only 1 scart socket on back of pio and when ive plugged it in there nothing happens, what am I doing wrong? I get the feeling its something simplw and im going to kick myself when I find out! any help would be great, thanx in advance :rotfl: :rotfl:

    The scart on the 575 is output only so there is no way to feed sky+ through it.

    Just connect sky+ to one of the RGB scarts on the PV500, it's much more convenient than running it through something else, just make sure you use a good quality scart lead and have the digibox set to RGB and 16:9.

    You're not going to be able to improve pq on sky anyway as it's just not very good to begin with on 90% of the channels.BBC channels seem to be very bad at the mo with noise all over the image.

    to add to that, people suggest this when you have a DVD recorder, which has a scart input, which it then upscales to component and outputs it through that, but it rarely improves PQ.
