    Hi all,

    Had a look through the forum, wouldn't mind some cabling advice :)

    Just ordered an Epson TW10 projector,

    This has the following connections
    - Composite Video
    - Analog RGB (VGA)
    - S-Video
    - Component Video

    Now, I've got a few boxes and consoles (the mrs loves all the wires :devil: ) that I want to plug in to it at various times and wanted to avoid the hassle of unplugging etc.

    The DVD player I'm using at the moment is a Pioneer DV 303 integrated :rolleyes:

    This only has composite video out and Svideo out, which one of these should I be using for the best picture quality? Should I just run Svideo to Svideo from the DVD to the PJ?

    The next one is Sky and the final one is a collection of Xbox, Ps2 and gamecube (the holy trinity!) I'm getting the AV pack for the xbox so I'm guessing component for that. Is there an equivalent for PS2 / Gamecube?

    The Sky box has the usual two SCART outputs, should I get a Scart -> RGB cable?

    Any advice really welcome and any links to cables that would be recommended just so I can understand what everyones on about would be great! Thanks in advance :thumbsup:

    For convenience I would probably run everything on S video mate. Ideally you should use component but you would need several conversion boxes to get it out of everything. Alternatively you could get a little I Scan processor and run everything into that :smashin:
