    Can anyone please help with what's the best way to connect a Sky DigiBox and DVD player to the new Dell 2300MP DLP projector?

    Spec of the Dell projector is:
    - Native Resolution of 1024x768
    - Supports NTSC, NTSC 4.43, PAL (B/D/G/H/I/M/N) and SECAM (B/D/G/K/K1/L)
    - 15kHz-70kHz horizontal scan
    - 56Hz-85Hz vertical refresh

    Am looking to upgrade to a progressive scan dvd player, but want to make sure it's compatible with the projector inputs:
    (1) composite [obviously want to avoid]
    (2) s-video [at a push]
    (3) svga [presumably the best option]

    The projector comes with a "RGB Component -> SVGA" cable (3 phono leads coloured red/green/blue on one end, 15-pin HD connector on other). Have been doing research, and it seems that progressive scan is only available via YUV-component outputs ...

    Am I mistaken? Please, tell me I am and it's only a simple matter of getting a SCART-to-VGA (15-pin HD) convertor. Or better still, only requires SCART-to-VGA cable!

    Any help / experience is greatly appreciated!

    :lease:

    Your projector, as do all LCD/DLP projectors have their own progressive scan processing. I own an Infocus SP4805 and the picture I get sending an interlaced signal from my prog scan DVD player is infinitely better than sending it a progressive scan signal. So long as you can send an RGB signal, you will get a very good picture. Yes, you can buy a scart to VGA converter/cable try www.keene.co.uk or www.lindy.co.uk

    Cheers Oakleyspatz! :smashin: -- I am much relieved to hear that the progressive dream is still achievable.

    So is there any need to get an expensive, “black-box” scart-to-vga convertor? Or do you get the same bang for the buck with a simple scart-to-vga cable?
