    :eek: Hi chaps, I have purposely only ran Component/HDMI cable runs for my latest build. The thing is I may want to use my projector for satallite/freeview and Xbox 360.

    Is this possible with the cables I have ran or not. will be very difficult to run an older type cable to accomodate these options:D

    Thank you

    The component cables should do the trick for you as even if you don't have component out on you sat/freeview box you can get converters which will do the trick for you. Hey, you could even just use one of the component cabes for a composit feed if you get desperate (not recommended though!)

    Hello pure-geordie

    Use the JS-Technology RGB2YUV converter on the Output of your RGB SCART enabled devices - see http://www.js-technology.com/produc...id=36&osCsid=61bf136c698175db7b534b33d8c99cd0

    As Horny says you can purchase a Freeview box with YUV Out on SCART - see http://www.netgem.com/EN/produits_iplay.php?

    Your Xbox360 has an optional YUV cable so that's easy enough too.

    Then all you require is and AV Receiver with YUV switching or a decent quality external switch - see http://www.zektor.com/hds41/index.html

    Simple really.

    Joe
