    Hi Everyone,

    Thinking about entering the world of home cinema. After searching these forums I wondered if the above package would make sense. I would not be looking to upgrade for sometime. I notice that the TV has only two SCART connectors. How would I connect up a SKY digibox and VCR to get the best performance from the system ? (I'm still confused about RGB's etc) If my budget allows I might replace my old VCR. any suggestions ? Is the DVD multiregion or can it be hacked ?

    Any further comments or suggestions would be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Mike.

    [ I did reply to this earlier but it seems to have disappeared... ]

    The DAVS500 can be made multi-region but it requires a hardware mod. Reckon on £30-£50 above the R2 price.

    One of the drawbacks of the S500 is that it only supports S-video and composite video; there's no RGB output.

    On the plus side, this simplifies your connection options as only one SCART (usually AV2) will support S-video.

    I would connect them as follows:

    DVD->AV2
    VCR->SAT
    SAT->AV1
