    I'm in the process of looking for a widescreen tv (76cm). After having a look at whats available I have noticed that most of them do not have S-Video or component video inputs but 3 or so scart inputs. Is there any difference from scart to the other two formats? My DVD player only has composite and S-Video outputs and I'm not looking to upgrade that in the near future. The clerk said that you can get a S-Video to scart leads. Will this result in diminished video quality?

    Any answers are greatly appreciated.

    SCART jacks may be configured in different ways including S-video and composite. Check your manual to be sure your TV accepts S-video, then you can get a cable with an S-video plug at one end and a SCART plug at the other end.
    You should have no degradation of quality.
