I presume you have used the TV SCART, this provides both stereo audio and component video, along with options of S-Video and composite. To access this you will require a suitable cable, or adaptor. You could use a simple adaptor such as DSE P6699, this adaptor will give you access to component video, however you will need to pickup the audio from the rear panel, there is a pair of L&R RCA connector on the rear of the box. You could also get a complete cable such as Jaycar WQ7255, if you can visit a Sky Shop in a major centre they will give you a similar cable for nothing.

Remember only the TV SCART supports component video, you need to enter the setup menus and in the SCART setup you will find the options for Component along with S-Video, RGB and composite.

Remember to change to component video before you do the change, the composite video and RF outputs will contine to work as usual so you can change it now and plug the adpator in when you get it and it should just all happen.
