    Hi everybody.

    Im looking to get a TV to go with the hifi setup im getting soon. Im getting a Marantz SR4500, DV4400 and the Tannoy FX5.1 speakers. Im looking to purchase a 28" widescreen flatscreen tv and ive got about £400 to spend including delivery so the tv will have to be about £380. I dont know if i shouold use video switching on the amp. Ive told nto to use composite connections and to use scart or rgb. I was also told svideo connections arnt worth it because of the costs of the cables, please correct me if any of this is wrong.


    For any recomendations i thank you in advance.

    Use rgb where possible. Composite is generally avoided unless there is no other option - highly unlikely. Cost of s-vid cables:http://custom1.farnell.com/cpc/product.asp?catalog_name=CPC+Catalogue&product_id=252552 http://custom1.farnell.com/cpc/product.asp?catalog%5Fname=CPC+Catalogue&product%5Fid=252519

    So in order of quality i should look at component, then svideo then scart or is scart and svideo the other way around? If i can find a tv that supports component ill use it but i havent found anything that uses it.

    Thanks.

    The order of quality is generally considered to be:

    Component (progressive)
    Component (interlaced)
    Scart (RGB)
    S-Video
    Scart (non-RGB)
    Composite

    Though there are a few combinations of TV/DVD etc which may actually not follow these rankings

    Personally I'd spend another £50 or so and get something with 2 RGB scarts in case you want to attach a terrestrial or satellite receiver too. I know that you can operate these with a non-RGB connection but you do loose a noticable ammount of picture quality. OR even better, get an IDTV (if you can receive Freeview).

    (this is not an endorsment of that particular retailer, BTW)

    Im afraid i cant get freeview but i may eventually get ntl digital in my room. I thought 1 rgb scart would be enough because all i will have on the tv is DVD player, NTl Digital and my PC. i can connect the ntl digital to the rgb scart then the dvd player to the ntl digital and then my pc to the other scart since i wont really use it much just have it there when i need it and the scart has svideo support anyway so i can just use the svideo out on my pc to the tv..
