    This may be a very dumb question but I'm going to ask anyway.

    I splashed out a 42" Panny and "cabled for the future", embedding a decent Scart Cable, a "Computer-type" lead and a YUV component cable into the wall.

    I have bought and fitted my component board and now have a triple-pnc ended cable - with nothing to plug it into. My DVD player is ancient and my freeview decoder is an old On-Digital one.

    Until I get my new DVD recorder/player and/or PVR (with the correct outputs)
    can I utilise this new connection with some kind of scart/YUV

    I also have a Quintro which (like the PS2) has the Yellow/Left/Right connection - can I use this at all ?

    Thanks

    Tet

    To use a converter like the one Chris suggested you will need to at least output an RGB signal, not composite (yellow cable). The red and white are for sound.

    If you have RGB outputs then the JS Tech RGB to component converter is very good.
