    I have a dvd recorder that only outputs RGB or s-vhs, and a digital cable box that will output either RGB or composite. Ideally I would like to output from dvd to pj with cable linked to dvd with rgb scart. Any ideas as to the best possible way. Also, if anyone can offer advice on the use of a pro v+ or iscan, are any of these a viable worthwhile option given the above will be my primary sources. I have looked through the threads but not seen anything to answer these questions directly. Also I understand the vga input of the panny pj is rgb. Would it be possible with an appropriate lead to output directly from the rgb of the dvd to the vga socket. (forgive my ignorance if this is all basics).
    Any advice greatly appreciated.

    I too would like to know how to do this. My cable box outputs composite (not great quality) and RGB. Also, I don't want to spend too much cash.

    Unfortunately, the VGA connector on the back of the PJ won't accept a SCART type RGB input, so you'll first need to convert to S-Video using one of these http://www.rgbtosvideo.com/rgb-sv/rgb-circuit.htm. There are numerous threads on this issue if you do a search using "sky rgb ae100"

    I disagree with gingercat I think you'd be better off with a rgb scart to component converter. There are 3 different types available but sadly the minimum is about £75 for the basic model from lektropacks (who are also the importer into the uk).

    The device is made in china.

    I suspect if we could organise some sort of powerbuy we could get these for a fraction of the lektropacks price by ordering internationally as lektropacks are a total rip off and I bet being the exclusive importer doubly so.
