    Best way to conect a DVD player

    Hi,

    The school have ordered 2 DVD players.
    Just standard sony DVD players. I have on the back a Audio out left and right socket and a digital out coaxial and also a scart cable.

    I need this to conect one to a projector which has a s video , video , vga dvi-d inputs also it has Audio in for the s video/ video vga in and dvi-d.

    what would be the best array of cables to order to fix this up?

    Seems like a rather expensive option. Considering the DVD players are probably only £30 a go.

    How about something like this;

    SCART to S-VHS & 2 x Phono Plugs : SCART : Maplin Electronics

    Although I'd be inclined to see what comes in the box before buying cables.

    We use scart to phono (red/yellow/white) which works well, saves unplugging any cables and you just switch the projector input source
