    HI.

    I`m considering buying one of these sets. The only sticking point is the fact that the s-video is at the front of the tv. I have a denon receiver that is s-video out so I`m not happy about having a lead at the front of the tv plugged in.
    Any suggestions on other inputs I could use.

    thanks in advance..

    Yes, use and S-video din/phono L & R to SCART lead. (S-video SCART on your TV, usually ext 2 on Tosh)

    Just make sure that the signal is going in the direction of the SCART, althoug hsome a re switchable.

    No.
    Kevo is right Toshiba 32ZP18PQ rear scart 2 (and 3 ) for S-Video.

    If your DVD player has a component video output, use that, it is generally regarded as slightly better than RGB, which in turn is slightly better than S-Video ( usually ).

    Shouldn't be. Make sure you buy a good quality one like IXOS or QED.

    Is it an actually lead you have to buy. I`ve already got an expensive s-video cable that goes to my tv from my receiver. Is there just a scart plug that an s-video connects into? or is it a complete lead?

    thanks again..

    The only other connection I use is the playstation 2.
