    Can anyone help???
    I've just bought a Themescene H30a and electric 5 ft screen, both of which to be ceiling mounted.
    What is the best way to connect them to my Denon adv-m51 surround system, i don't have freeview or digi at all so will need to subscribe or purchase one or the other.
    What would be the best and easist way to have them all working at their optimum?
    I've had the guy in the shop saying VGA cable is the best and to connect a scart splitter to the dvd and freeview, does this mean i need a 10 metre scart cable or VGA cable?
    Please help me!!
    :lease: :suicide:

    Your DVD player Outputs RGB via SCART and your Projector can Input RGB via its HD15(VGA) connector.

    You can either use an HD15(VGA) to HD15(VGA) cable plus the supplied SCART adapter or get a custom SCART to HD15 cable - the later is possibly slightly better as you don't have the adapter in the signal path.

    If you add another SCART RGB source (SKY or Freeview) you can simply daisy chain that with the DVD player (the SKY or Freeview boxes have a second SCART socket with a 'pass through' function).

    If you require additional SCART RGB sources you can add in a decent SCART switch hub for around £70.00.

    Best regards

    Joe

    [/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT] :thumbsup: I have an H30a (excellent PJ), and have used a good quality 10M VGA cable with the supplied adaptors - as Joe suggests. I obtained the VGA cable from one of the sponsors of this forum. Expect to pay about £60.
    I have everything, DVD,VCR, and Freeview box going in to a scart distribution box, and output to either my TV or projector - the results are superb.

    Yes it is Nick (I find that anyway), it is certainly worth getting SCARTed up.
