    Although your TV is a DLP, the answer to a cabling question is pretty much the same irrespective of the type of TV. So you may get a more comprehensive answer in the cabling forum; I can move this if you like. Your choice.

    If your getting you xbox modded that will require the component connections, but for now RGB scart is fine.

    Xbox Video - Sagem = RGB Scart
    Xbox Audio - DAV-SC8 = Optical
    DAV SC8 - Sagem = Component

    The cable that came with the Xbox was probably a composite connection, bin it and get a RGB scart cable, making sure it also has a optical output. I think Ixos make one but I don't think it has a optical output. With the component and optical I would probably opt for Supra, but I'm probably being biased :smashin:

    With a screen like that, you really should consider getting Sky HD when it comes out :thumbsup:
