    I've just got my first projector. Its a Misubishi UL5 (LCD, XGA 1700 Lumens) which I'm over the moon with.

    I want to run an NTL Cable TV box, an XBox, a DVD player and my PC through it and eventually have it roof mounted.

    On my old set-up I just had a three scarts into one adaptor then into the back of a rear projector TV but the only video inputs on the projector is composite and s-video.

    After doing some research on here it looks like I should be using component connections but unless theres some sort of adapter available to plug into the PC socket I can't see how I would plug the 3 components and if I did I would use up the PC input needed for my PC.

    The only other way I can see is to plug a scart to S-Video converter (shown below) into the output from my 3-way scart box and into my PJ but surely this is a "bodge"? So whats the best way?

    If you don't have component then S Video is the next best.

    What woudl be better is a scart to s video cable. Then attach the scart end to the player and the S Video end to the S Video connector of the PJ. You must be able to send S Video through the scart socket.

    S Video also only does video. So, connect stereo phono (red/white) or digital audio to the audio device.

    It is possible to get just Scart to S Video as well as one with red/white phono.

    Have a look here (calls S Video SVHS which is incorrect but, they it the same thing).
