    Just bought a used AV8 (and P7 though not sure how long I will keep that) and have got a couple of queries.

    Firstly, are there any upgrades planned apart from ProLogic 2x software, e.g. HDMI input board?

    Secondly, I currently have sky+ hooked up via a JS RGB to component convertor through the AV8. Looks like the AV8 can be set up to accept RGB, does anyone know if that means I just need a scart to 3 phono (sync on green) cable and can ditch the convertor? Also have DV88+ which I think can be configured to output RGB rather than YUV??

    Limited playing to date but very happy with new addition to date :thumbsup:

    Cheers
    Rob

    None that Arcam have publicly acknowledged.

    The silence is deafening.

    Regards,

    Re the SCART, I don't think its that simple as just a scart to phono, but I'm not 100% sure. Someone like Joe Fernand, Gordon Fraser or Nic Rhodes would know for sure

    Regards

    Depends what display device you are running to....

    Assuming it is a device which will accept RGBS i.e RGB and seperate sync, then you can switch these on the AV8, you basically use the composite switching section of AV8 as well as component, this switches in parallel to standard component. A good dealer should be able to order / make you a scrat to 4phono for both your DVD and Sky +. Hope this helps :thumbsup:
