    Confusion, PS3's and CRT's

    Right, i have a CRT monitor, which has VGA, and i have a CRT TV, which has the usual, a Scart , and a Red White Yellow connection, called Component?

    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.
