    Hope someone can help with a relatively straightforward question.

    I want to connect my PS2 to my TV via RGB Scart. Now my Telly has 2 RGB enabled Scarts but both are in use (Digibox and DVD player).
    Can anyone recommend a good 2 into 1 scart connection that would have RGB enabled, and if possible point me to an online retailer that sells it.

    Cheers

    Why no plug the PS2 into the VCR socket on the digibox?

    This will give you RGB for all three items with the only down side being that you have to record items from skydigital using the aerial lead (which is only a minor downer IMO).

    The 'other' Scart connection on my Digibox is used by my VCR.
    From what your saying I guess that is just used to record from Sat. If I remove this and plug the PS2 into it how do I then connnect up the VCR ?

    The problem is if you use the aerial lead to connect your VCR you will only get mono soud from the VCR on recording and playback !!

    I would see what results you get from s-video from your PS2, some tv's you will see alot of difference and on others you will hardly be able to notice.

    It all depends on how often you record sky and if you think that having the PS2 in RGB is a bigger priority than recording sky in stereo.

    To be honest, I hardly ever record anything off the TV (girlfriend occasionally records Buffy or Angel). We mainly use it to keep our little boy happy with Bob the Builder videos. So picture quality isn't very important!
