    Current set up > TV, Sky+, VCR, DVD Player and Yam 750 Amp. All cabled together no problem. Amp is not used for video conversion at the moment. Now throw in a PJ aswell and now I'm stuck. I need to know the best way of hooking everything together.

    TV has two scarts
    Sky+ has two scarts [I think] and s-video
    VCR has two scarts
    DVD Player has two scarts but will be getting upgraded soon to a player with component connections and will no doubt have an s-video connection
    PJ is coming next week and will have component and s-video connections
    The Yam 750 is capable of video up conversion no problem but have never used it.

    Can anyone help me with connecting all this kit together to get the best out of it all?

    Many thanks in advance.

    My advice is if it's not broken don't fix it, i.e. leave everything the way it is and add more cables for the new kit.

    Once the projector comes in i'd s-video from sky + to the projector.

    Then either s-video from dvd to projector or wait for your new dvd and component connect the new dvd to the projector.

    As simple as that eh? Thanks for the advice.

    So I can keep the DVD player connected to the TV by scart and also connect at the same time to the PJ by s-video or component?
    I take it the same would go for the Sky box. Keep the scart to TV as well as s-video to the PJ?
