digital connectivity

  jack 09:25 27 Nov 2008

We have the dreaded SCART plug half wired and fully wired with all of its problems.
I also have component video and audio also connected
and selected on both Recorder and TV- so presumably SCART can be got rid of -- Yes?

Now I am setting up a digital recorder and TV for one of my daughters
I think I will go the 'component route' and leave SCART out of it - Feasible- Yes?

But then reading the books HDMI comes into the equation.
So All component or HDMI + audio

If you've got HDMI available on both TV and recorder, that's the way to go, maintaining a digital signal throughout.

The component route won't provide any switching of the inputs, not that it always works with scart. Both these methods are analogue though and subject to quality losses.

HDMI is the way to go for daughter then -both units are digital
What about my case where the DVD machine is Analogue and the TV is digital- will using the component video and audio RCA set up enable me to dispense with SCART?

HDMI did the trick in setting up a PVR that I am now wrapping- with HDMI cable to pass to daughter[Who's a luck Girl?]
