    Hi,

    I have a pioneer DVD player with component and S-Video outs and an older Sony TV with SCART and S-video inputs. i am currently using the lowest common denomnior i.e. S-video connections between the 2.

    Is there anyway I can take advantage of DVD player's superior component out put and play it through on my TV through the SCART plug?

    Thanks

    No, the best you can get is RGB through the scart cable.

    Unless your TV has component inputs you cannot use this signal.

    RGB is very good as it's derived from component, your TV also displays in RGB anyway so it's native to the technology.

    Thanks Paul,

    2 questions as I cannot RGB from the DVD:
    1. There are some cables that take component video in with SCART output without signal conversion. e.g. SCART TO 3 PHONO RGsB OR COMPONENT (2.0M) KLD160 from http://www.keene.co.uk/system/keene.htm. I suspect this may not work?

    2. I am alos getting an AV amp/receiver Yamaha RXV640RDS for surround. Can this be used as an inermdeiary fo conversion?

    Thanks

    A cable alone won't help, as you suspected. There are however two YPbPr > RGBS converters available from Keene, one being of their own make. I can't comment on how well these perform however, and they're expensive - Keene's own (C2RGB) costs £90 and one made by Kramer (FC-12E) costs £240.

    I'm almost completely sure the Yamaha cannot do anything either, although it may well have a pair of YPbPr component inputs allowing you to route the DVD player and other possible YPbPr outputting devices to it, if you later plan to buy a display with YPbPr component inputs.

    RGBS is probably not supported by the amplifier at all, even for plain throughput. The Yamaha flagship amps are getting the ability to decode and upscale composite or S-video to YPbPr component, but I don't think that even in that price range they support RGBS.

    It might be cheaper to sell your DVD player and buy one that has RGB output.
