    Advice please.

    Currently have sky+ box sound output connected to amp (yamaha AX 750) via optical link. Have DVD sound connected to amp via coaxial cable.

    Picture from sky goes via scart to Toshiba RD XS 34, then into sagem g4 via composite.

    I want to use the SPDIF function on the Sagem to sync sound and vision.

    Can I do this for both DVD and sky without fiddling with cables every time? It seems that the only way is to run a digital coaxial link from DVD to TV and then into amp, but that will then not use the sky plus digital out, and I understand that the RGB scart will not transmit 5.1 signal?

    Solutions anyone?

    Why does your picture go via the DVD recorder (unless it is acting as a scaler to the Sky pictures??) ? Can you not use the Video out Scart from the Sky box for that and then TV Scart to TV direct. (composite is the worst possible connection - unless you meant component?) That way, you only need the one SPDIF connection to the amp ? :lesson: (The sky box to Video/DVD will carry its own sound):confused:
    (Probably more a hinderance then a help):rolleyes:

    Cheers:hiya:

    Hi dunster,

    I did mean component, not composite, soz.

    If I connect the digibox to to TV using Scart, and don't use the digital optical out from the sky plus I was told I wouldn't get 5.1 signal?

    Also, using component I need to still send a sound signal from DVD player.

    Also on the Tosh you have to turn off the RGB scart to run component.

    Any ideas on how to get sky and DVD via SPDIF?
