If i was to connect the following

dvd scart > sky digi box using scart
sky digibox > panny plasma using JS component converter

would this mean that the dvd signal being sent to the plasma is component or similar quality.

I bought a DVD with two scarts, and looped my NTL digibox through the DVD player to keep the DVD closest to the panel. This works fine.

However, the VCR scart on my NTL digibox doesn't appear to offer RGB loopthrough. Most VCRs are composite only, so I guess it doesn't need to.

In answer to your question, it works fine for me. Why not ask in the Sky forum whether your box supports RGB loopthrough. Remember to state the model of the box. I am sure someone will be able to help you.

Assuming all units were set to output rgb and all were properly wired then AFAIK yes ... most digiboxes allow rgb passthrough ... although the digibox must be set to standby in order to allow the dvd picture signal through ...

My Sky+ box does not require to be put in standby. I presume it switches based on one of the control lines in the scart from the DVD. Switches to DVD as soon as the DVD player is turned on.

Which is nice :).

Well, it depends on the sequence you wire through. If it goes from SKY --> DVD --> screen, you have to put the DVD in standby to get the SKY signal. If you loop it around the other way (DVD - SKY - screen), you have to put the SKY in standby. As SKY is on more often then DVD, I loop it from sky - dvd - screen, so when you switch the DVD on, that takes presedence, otherwise sky will be the feeder.

I'd like to do it that way too, so as to minimise signal interruptions from DVD, but unfortunately Pioneer 717 doesn't have RGB loopthrough on its scarts :(.

Thats funny my Panny DVD has only 1 scart so I'll have to loop via the sky digibox.
