    My friend has just purchased a Toshiba 28Z23 TV & SD-42HK DVD, the SD-42HK does not have a scart connector but has component, composite & S-video. The TV has only two scarts, one RGB & one S-video. What we need to know is it possible to get a component to RGB converter, or is it better just to use S-video, to connect the DVD & TV.

    Looks like you can get RGB out of the SD42?!
    Look Here.

    The connections pop up is unviewable, but RGB is in the specs.


    I guess you need an RGB to SCART lead.

    I am a little concerned at the difference between what I see the SD42 looks like at the Toshiba's site, and what Toshiba describe it will have :confused:

    That column of 'Video 1 Out' connections, is there a menu setting that would let you alocate them to RGB?!!

    Going component to RGB is the wrong way for the common HC setups.
    rgbtosvideo have RGB to YUV, :devil:

    And I've no idea where Tosh have hidden the scart connector.
    soz!
