    Orded a H56 but having to wait 2 weeks for delivery

    so while I wait i'm after some cabling advice.

    I will be connecting to a Pioneer 656a DVD player and

    a SKY Plus box both will be at least 6 metres from the projector

    as for H56

    go component to vga (the h56 comes with adapter for vga socket so lead will be terminated component both ends)

    as for scart u may need a switcher box to convert scart to component or svideo and the if component use the component to dvi adapter the h56 supplies or go straight in with super video.

    im not sure if u can use a scart rgb to 3RCA component(no audio)
    but i gess if u can u could use that instead.

    better if u have a good amp that can switch. so one component cable from amp to h56 and each source to the amp(which is what i would do)

    best price on H56 is www.audiovisiononline.co.uk
    for under £2200
