    Hi,

    You can connect your Sky box up using an RGB to VGA converter from JS Tech at www.rgbtosvideo.com You will also find more info on the RGB to YUV converter here. 5m long good quality component cables are available from www.tmfsolutions.co.uk for about £50. Hope this helps.

    you cant use the js-vga box because of the scan rates I was told by the guys at Nexnix that the vga port can be changed from RGB to component this will be ok for your dvd then also you can connect the sky by scart to RGB composite sync which is quite good because from a couple of threads I have read on this site you can just press a button on the remote to switch between the sky and video.
