    Hi,

    I recently made a Component to VGA lead. I used an Ethernet lead (Foil Shielded), and some high quality gold plated RCA connectors.

    The lead works fine, except when I watch movies that have fast paced, dark action scenes in them (or with smoke). I get a ghosting. This doesnt happen with out door well lit action scenes. I have tested my projector using a VGA to VGA RGB cable and no problems.

    Should I retry using digital coxial thats silver plated? Also what is the difference in ohms rate mean? And one cable I looked at mentioned the mhz rating (300mhz).

    Also could the problems Im having, have anything to do with that the DVD's I try are all standard def dvds? not Hi-def?

    As a novice, any tips would be greatly appriecated.

    Cheers

    Carl :)

    I had keene make me a Sync blaster cable .. RGB componant to VGA. it does have to be pluged in mind 9v adaptor. i guess this is the ghosting you see due to weak signal?

    have a look. although mine is fully wired scart to vga the signal is the same as what you are using.

    Hi,

    Well this is were I confused. Some people say RGB is different to Component, but both are Red Green Blue. errrr... well confusing. I've been told the main difference is that Scart requires sync pins.

    Cheers
