    Does anyone know of any digital boxes with a component output? I am going to purchase a Plasma screen and want to hook up a digital tv box for maximum quality. Does anyone know of such a box, or do you think I would be better using a top notch very high quality scart cable instead?

    there is one called the netgem iplayer that does component over scart.

    so you would need a rgb scart to 3 component cable

    Thanks, jmak. In that case, as I currently own a Pace Twin, do you think I would get a better picture if i just purchase an RGB scart to 3 component cable, and stick with this box? Would this be a better pic than just using the scart?

    does the pace twin output component over scart?

    think it can depend on what plasma you are using?

    and if a scaler is needed

    Oh dear you are between a rock and a hard place.

    The Twin is a FANTASTIC piece of kit but the Netgem IPlayer does component.

    This comes down to a number of things.

    Do you want to mess about swapping between to DTTV devices for watching live or recorded, or even drop to a video recorder.

    My advise is get a Plasma with excellent RGB handing or a top quality RGB to Component adaptor.

    Or try to convert the Twin to component:confused:

    Anything but a Twin I'd say I Player but Twin messes this up!
