    Hi

    I currently have a fairly old tv that has no HDMI socket nor Component Video.

    Doubt the answer is yes, but can you buy a lead that connects the hdmi from the DVD to the scart socket on the TV to increase PQ?

    I know you can buy Component Video to scart, or am i mistaken?

    if not mistaken, is this better than just using RGB?

    many thanks

    Hi, you can't use HDMI with a scart socket because HDMI carries ONLY a digital signal and scart carries ONLY an analogue signal. There is such a thing as a Component to scart cable which carry a Y/Cb/Cr signal but the scart socket would have to accept that signal. Not many do.:thumbsup:

    Have a look in the manual and see what signals the scart will accept, look out for 'component', Y/Cb/Cr, Y/U/V or Y/Pr/Pb
