    I have just installed the Oyster motorised satelite system on my motorhome and have used my old Pace digibox and scart to an old 14in TV and it works perfectly.

    I now want to mount a new 17ins flat screen monitor for the TV picture instead of the 14in TV and was wondering what the best way was to do it. Perhaps the RS232 output from the digibox can provide the video signal? or is there a scart converter to connect the scart output to a monitor?The audio from the digibox goes straight into the motorhome audio amplifier.

    Also whilst the digibox is working fine my old Sky card is not recognised now for the other free channels ITV1 etc. OK on BBC and others. I suppose I can buy a new card for ITV still? or perhaps my old Sky card can be reactiveted for ITV?

    Any advice most welcome.

    By the way the Oyster sat system is superb and when swithed on erected itself searched for Astra 2 and locked on immediately. Made in Germany and very high quality in all respects. http://www.ten-haaft.de/ I got mine through Transleisure in the UK http://www.transleisure.co.uk/

    Thanks Mike

    Mike,
    Take a look at J S Technology (www.js-technology.com). They do an RGB (scart out of the digibox) to Plasma VGA (PC in on the display) Converter.
    Regards,
    Derek
