    Just got a Tosh 220 MR from Amazon for £119 as a second player.
    It came with no power lead which didn't matter as I had one and the instructions were in French & German only. The menu's look easy enough on screen but which option do you choose for component video output?

    I only see video, S-Video & RGB.

    Currently using RGB on the scart but would like to swap to component.

    Firmware is 1.5 which is good after reading other threads.

    Any ideas????:confused:

    Tried that but seem to lose the picture completely...

    Spoke to someone at work who has the same model and he says the manual says that component needs to be set to video or s-video.

    Seems odd to me..:confused:

    Which confirms you set it to video or s-video.

    Still sounds weird.

    I'm going to a 40" tosh and I'm positive the component cables are in correctly.

    Have to check again tonight!!!

    wvoss,

    I had a 220 for a while connected by component to a plasma. You do need to set the output to video or s-video then (obviously) connect the 3-way component lead from the component out sockets. Picture should still be top-notch but I'd be surprised if you can see much difference if you're currently using RGB SCART.

    Most DVD players cannot output an RGB and component signal at the same time; this is why you need to set the output to Video/S-Video. It makes no difference which one you chose if you are only using the component outputs.

    As long as you are getting a picture when the DVD is set to Video/S-Video then there isn't a problem; component will output automatically.
