Hi Guys,
I've noticed/read that there are a few options available to connect Toppy from and to other peripherals.
Which would be the preferred cable options to connect with? I.E. RGB vs Scart, Optical, Co-axial, Scart vs s-vhs?
Any help would be grateful, I'm just in the middle of installing Toppy now!
Cheers,
Mark.

RGB scart is always best
S-video 2nd best
component video next best

Audio best s/pdif (through an amp)

Just don't ask a Comet "fully trained staff" member.
From their latest flyer
Quote:
Scart. Good connection.
S-video. Better connection.
Component video. Best connection.

If your still not sure, why not bring the instruction book(s) for your existing equipment to us & let one of are fully-trained in-store staff help you get connected.

What about S-video, RGB or Component via SCART? They don't seem to know the difference between a video standard like composite and a physical connector. I wonder what they would say if you asked if their "HD Ready" TVs have DVI or HDMI? Probably, "It's got component video and that's the best connection you can get".

Sorry, my previous post should have read Composite not Componet, component video is the best as it provides the the separate colours Red Green Blue through 3 separate cables, many scarts provide this, provided the equipment can send the RGB through the scart. Embarassed
