Last night I had a crack at connecting my new Toshiba DVD player (well new, but old in fact! Must be circa 2001 vintage) to my plasma. It was already hooked up by RGB Scart and when I attached the Component cable. . . Nothing. No signal said my screen. Turns out that the Tosh has three output settings: Video, S-Video and RGB. In order to get the best Scart image you set on RGB. S-Video is B&W down the scart and Video just not as good as RGB. But turning to component, I did get a signal on Video and S-Video. But not RGB. I'm fairly sure that the Component output is better than the RGB Scart but only just. And it's a bit wierd as I've got to have it set on video or s-video and I don't know which is better. Does anyone know? I've got it set on Video as I couldn't work out which to use.
