    Simple question, really! Are they all RGB, or do I need to keep an eye out for an RGB DVD player?

    Thanks in advance for any input!

    Nope, I have a first generation Momitsu which doesn't output RGB. How common that is I couldn't say. AFAIK if a player has a SCART it'll be able to output RGB, although SCART can carry RGB, S-video and composite I personally haven't come across one which didn't implement RGB.

    I would have thought that any recent DVD Player would output RGB via Scart, but I remember an old Pioneer 515 from a few years ago that didn't output RGB.

    So any modern one going via a scart is most likely to output RGB?

    OK, thanks for your replies!

    There are many players that don't output RGB particularly from abroad, I have 6 at home alone!! Generally nowdays if it has a SCART (lower end UK / european ones) that you are likely to get RGB but this is far from the norm globally.
