Buns - you're joking. A war of words so far I agree (eg just look at the other posts on this thread) , but hotting up.the Lumagen/Iscan battle hasnt yet started!
Lack of scart on scalers isn't really a problem, you either get your kit SDI modded (best quality option) or get a scart to RGB+CV component cable.Originally posted by philipb

Thanks guys for all that, but not really what I asked. What looked at least superficially attractive about the Cinemateq is the connectivity. SCART and SDI in, and DVI out. If you add all that to say a Lumagen (SCART of course not an option on the others) it bumps up the price quite a bit. Maybe the cinemateq does PAL better - being a European machine?
I think Gordon has.no one (who can say anything) has actually seen the lumagens
You don't need a RGB scart to component YPbPr adapter, component can be RGB+Composite(sync) as output natively by most scart equipment. All you need is a scart to 4 RCA/BNC cable and tell the scaler to accept RGB+Composite(sync) instead of YPbPr.Originally posted by philipb
Just that with the SCART input on the Cinemateq I could do away with the need for a RGB to component converter - one less box and one less set of cables, one less conversion, one less mains plug, etc.
