    Many of us appreciate the scart to VGA or scart to Component boxes made by JS Technology. Unfortunately, when using these boxes you lose the automatic switching of ratio coming from pin 8 (?) of the Scart connection. This is quite handy with a sky digibox. A high tech solution would be for these boxes to read the electric signal on pin 8 and send, either a RS-232 C signal to screens that can read these (Pioneer) or an infrared code (if discrete infrared codes exist for the specific brand). The only complication is that the box needs to be plasma brand specific.

    "The only complication..." LOL. :rotfl: How much do you think that would add to R&D, production, technical support, and therefore cost to you?

    Switch your screen to 16:9 and leave it there. :lesson: Problem solved. :clown:

    Alternatively, you could buy a Tuner box for your plasma/LCD; these accepts scart leads and handle aspect ratio switching very well.

    I only wish this was a standard! If it were, it would be on the unit.

    All the best,

    Dr John Sim.
