Best connection type?

Hi folks

Awaiting delivery of my Samsung 26" LCD TV (LE26R41BD). Its connections are 2 Scart sockets (AVI, RGB), S-Video and Component Video connections.

My question is, in order to get the best image quality from my DVD player (Philips DVP630 Progressive Scan, DIVX dvd player) I am better connecting via the RGB scart socket, the S-Video socket or the Component Video connections.

Thanks in advance for all opinions.

SCART is usually deemed the best connection type.
If only the things could be locked in.
It seems one need only walk past the rig or switch something on/off and you have one drop out- with all the resultant on your knees and groping business.

I recommend reading the DVD manual. I think the best output is through the component video cables - this is where the progressive scan feeds.

Yup Component with P-scan is better than Scart.

Progressive scan and component video eh!
I do recall seeing that in my Sony DVD/HDD manual
Can I get it to work with my Sony TV?
and how does it work with other boxes hooked up via a scart switcher?
Hmmm another manual headache looms....
