    no component is YUV/YPbPr but you can also use the same board for RGBHV (VGA) which does need them (make sure you get the right board tho "dude")

    That is the one, you just connect the YUV cables to the RGB coloured terminals, just as you'd expect.

    Take i8t to the classifieds...... a Scart to VGA ~(15pin D-sub will work for RGG but the JS RGB>VGA is the best in the business, Keene syncblaster or QED Q sync are other options...both around £70

    OK. Im totally new to this :rolleyes:
    Im not a total thicko when it comes to AV stuff but I dont understand a few terms you used.

    Whats an RGG?
    Also can you explain if RGB is the white red yellow cables and Composite is the scart?

    If you clear this up for me I'd be grateful.


    LMAO I am totally broke from buying the display :rotfl:


    scart - vga is scart to 15 pin connector right?

    What do you mean about scart doesnt give a picture just the controlls?

    OMG Im scared and confused. :rolleyes:

    nathanf "chill man" OK scart can carry video ,sound and data, RGB is a video signal and can be carried by scart, RGB+ Sync (sync comes from composite Video) is what the RGB> VGA things do......but only use the video and audio pins (scarts have 21) the Composite video (yellow) and Right audio (red) and LEFT (white) is the lowest PQ you get on scart

    Thankyou thankyou thankyou.

    someone has given me this.....

    [​IMG]

    Its a scart on one end and a composite on the other. (it feels very cheap)

    Should I use this for my STB or my DVD.

    Im VERY stuck on how to connect. Will I need one of these Sync boxes that people talk about?

    It allready has the box thing underneath which allows connections. This should help right?

    I plan to invest money in my plasma as time goes on, but right now Im pretty much skint.

    Nathan, first i'll go with NTL - best is to get a JS Tech RGB to VGA setup, but Syncblaster is a cheaper alternative. Connect whichever device to the "TV" scart output on the NTL.

    Need to know more about your home cinema kit. There are three possibilities,

    - look for component video connections (red, green and blue phono plugs all used for a single video signal). If you have this, this is what to connect to the plasma with (to the corresponding Red, Green and blue no the terminal board).

    - if not does it have a scart? If so you will need to do a little research to see if the scart socket is able to stick out an RGB signal (basically component quality, but different type of signal). Check the manual, or go into the DVDs SETUP menu where there is usually an OUTPUT option where you can activate RGB. Or post the model number of your player here and someone may know. If you have RGB, then activate this in the setup menu of the player, and connect the scart output of the player to the VCR scart on the NTL. This will route the signal up to the plasma.

    - if neither of these connections is possible, or there is scart but it won't do RGB. Run an s-video cable from the s-video on the player to the s-video on the screen
