    Best Connection For TV

    Just upgraded TV to a rebranded Thomson 32LB125B5 from Woolies
    http://www.hdtvsolutions.com/Thomson-32LB125B5.htm
    I now can see all the imperfections my old CRT hid so well! Was wondering if you all could help me with some information.
    I was reading a bit about RGB, composite and scart leads, e.t.c and was just wondering what would be the best?
    I think it is the component and RGB leads are best though RGB are favoured?
    Would i notice a considerable difference if i bought a RGB leads for my current DVD player;

    Or be better going for an upgrade? And if so, any cheap-ish recommendations?
    Thanks!

    From what I understand if you go in to the TV with standard definition (Scart, Composite, S-vidio) the TV will do the upscaling which is often quite poor (as you are seeing).

    A dvd player with built in upscaling should be better. Does your DVD player have component out? If so get some cheap cables and give it a go.

    If not Richer Sounds have a range of cheap ones. If you live near a shop you get the added bonus of actually being able to hold one first!

    For specifics, check out some reviews, I'm sure there'll be some out there!

    Thanks for the reply! I seen a few of these 'upscaling' dvd players on Ebay was keeping an eye on the prices, 40 pounds seems to get you a good make (Samsung) which is very decent

    The scart connection, actually contains composite, S-video, RGB and audio all of which are analogue signals, just different qualities (RGB>S-Video>Composite).
    For the best quality i would reccomend HDMI which is a digital signal, so you dont loose any quality from converting a signal into analogue and then back to digital.
