I also have a Avious DRW1029 which i believe has composite in and out and s-video

How can i connect a PS3, which i believe only has a HDMI connection, to either of these, preferably the TV?

Its composite not Component, component is when you get a red and white audio and a green blue and red video input.

A PS1 or PS2 scart cable would work fine.

The lead supplied with the PS3 is the one you use, if you only have a HDMI to HDMI (Not supplied in the box by Sony)lead then you won't be able to connect it directly.

Thanks for that, yes then, i have Composite on the DVD Recorder (5 sockets) and Component on the TV (3 sockets)

I have a PS1 here, but IIRC it just goes to the aerial socket.

So i need either a PS2 Scart lead, or i can use a composite lead? Do Zavvi sell either of these, as i'll be down there on Monday, and i'll be trying to make them through one of these leads in :-D

Other way around Composite is red white and yellow component is the one with 5 cables.

And yes the basic cable that the ps3 comes with works.
