    I've run out of connections at the back of my TV so I wanted to make sure that the set-top-boxes with 2 Scarts allow me to plug say my Xbox into it and use the set-top-box as a pathway for my Xbox signal into my TV.

    If this is the case does the set top box need to be turned on and will it allow for RGB signals to be passed through?

    Can anyone also comment on any expected loss of picture quality for the Xbox picture in this sernario.

    Thanks :)

    A compatable 2 scart Freeview box should and can pass RGB through it to the TV from another RGB source.

    Nice one wayne :)

    Does the freeview need to be turned on or does it work like a VCRs RF loop where it works while in standby?

    No the box shouldnt have to be switched on, im runing a ps2 that way and it works fine without the box switched on.

    But it may be different depending on what box u have.
