    Hi all,

    I have a question. i have a toshiba mt100 DLP projector and i would like to watch tv on my beamer. what is the best / easiest way to accomplish this?

    my projector has a SVHS input that i use in combination with a component to svhs adapter. can i hook up my vcr to my beamer? the vcr has a scart output.

    any help is appreciated!


    Yours Sincerely D. Spangenberg

    I have a scart to svhs adaptor which i bought for use from my video to my pj yet it plays black and white for some reason, so i have used the composite lead as the adaptor also has an output for that. So i go from adaptor to pj via composite lead and the picture is okay, i think to use component you will need a special convertor that do not come cheap.

    As a side does anybody know why this plays in black and white as i wouldnt mind getting the svhs lead hooked up for euro04.

    Normal VCRs (non s-video/svhs models) only output composite video, hence a black & white picture (chrominance element is missing).

    The quickest & easiest way is from scart to composite (single yellow phono/RCA connector).

    or buy a cheap S-VHS VCR. I think you can pick them up quite reasonable now.

    Thanks Inzaman,

    I got myself also a scart to svhs / rca adapter. and i have the same problem as you have. black and white if i use the svhs port. so i also use the composite port.
    it works like a charm. although the quality is not superb like when using component, it is a quick and cheap way to get things done :)

    Jim see Kramers response above to my initial query, which explains the reason. You will have to use composite to get a colour picture.

    I got the js rgb > svideo converter yesterday,tried it last night and the picture on most of the sky channels is really good.I think I am right in saying that some channels are poor quality anyway.Tried composite before this and it sucks in comparison. :)
