    I've got my kit set-up as:

    Freeview box via RGB Scart -> DVD Recorder via component -> Plasma (Panny 5 series)

    The DVD recorder acts as an RGB-> component converter. It's not as good as a JS Tech box but it saves on wires and boxes.

    I think I want to put another connection in from the DVD Recorder Scart to the VGA input on the plasma so i can watch the freeview box while the recorder is recording (analogue sadly) terrestrial. However this isn't such a big deal that I want a convertor. Is it possible to just use a cheap cable to do this and accept that there's going to be a picture quality cost?

    Cheers,

    Nick

    Interesting looking cable, but cheaper might be better. Has anyone tried connecting the SCART RGB signal to the VGA input with just an appropriately wired cable? Any thoughts as to whether this works or whether the sync voltage really is a problem?

    Cheers,
