    I bought an Acer LCD recently to take advantage of high-def gaming. Problem: the Acer accepts component only via a scart input (very odd) and not directly.

    My consoles component cables only connect directly to a component input. Does this mean I am doomed and can't enjoy high-def? Or is there some scart adapter which takes component as input? Do I need a VGA box? Can I use a phono to scart adapter?

    Are there any devices or solutions which you know of that can help? Would be a real shame to send the TV back.

    Thanks!

    Thanks for the suggestion, but I already found a solution.

    A tripe phono coupler does the job. It has the composite colours on it which can be misleading but component works just fine as well. You'll need two of them though - one for the video and one for the audio output. Since audio is only two inputs a double phono coupler is suitable for that. Hope this helps someone in future.
