    Why is nothing simple? I appreciate this has been discussed before but I just wanted clarification for my own mind.

    In wanting to connect it to my amp I assumed I would be able to purchase a lead that would incorporate both a s-video cable and digital out cable and thus using my amp as a pass through for the image.

    Presumably if i attach the MS Advanced Scart cable to my TV and then utilise the optical out to my amp presumably I will continue to get sound out of the TV as a scart cable carries both Image and Sound, unlike the S video cable.

    Is this correct?

    That is correct.
    Presumably though, since your're using an AV amp for your sound you have the TV speakers disabled/muted anyway?

    The advantage of the advanced Scart cable is that it carries an RGB signal which will give better results than S-Video on most tellies.

    I got a third-party X-box S-Video + optical digital output lead/box for £15 from Toys 'R Us. To my surprise this also included a thin S-Video lead.

    I wanted S-Video to feed into a capture card for Dscaler big-screen viewing!

    regards,
    Rob.

    I got a third party cable which has all the connections (except RGB scart).

    S-VHS,
    composite
    component
    optical
    scart via either S-VHS via converter or composite via adaptor.

    Personally I prefer S-VHS as the connector is on the front of my TV and all my scart sockets are used.

    Mind you it was £25 from Game.

    Cheers

    Got mine from Sainsbury's for £12.99.
    A bit more than Dabs, but I got it there and then.
