    I'm new to CRT's. This is my first CRT. I'm looking for advice on connecting and settings.
    I have an 801s and an Iscan pro connected with a 15 pin connector to the 5 BNC plugs. The DVD player is connected to the Iscan with s-video ( I can't seem to get a picture with the scart to component cable, it flickers).
    My questions are:
    What should I set the controls on the Iscan at to set it up?
    Why does the picture flicker with the scart to component cable?
    I've got a picture, but has an offset band across the top of picture why?

    Any advice would be appreciated.
    Thanks
    Scott

    The reason is that you are trying to feed the iscan with an rgb signal from the scart socket of the dvd, but it needs a component signal. You could get a rgb to component converter for about £70 up to £130 (depending on quality) which you would attach via scart to your dvd player and then attach to the iscan via 3 phono leads. This would solve it for you...

    Or you could get a great little Tosh DVD machine with component video out from Richer Sounds for about £50.00 :D

    Cheers. I'll stick to s-video connection for the moment.
