    Hi all,

    Are there any good (but not too expensive) DVD players with SCART S-Video out connections? My TV plays RGB really poorly so I have to use S-Video.

    Most players seem to have a dedicated S-Video out connection port and I'd like a SCART one.

    I think both the Pioneer 444 and Toshiba SD220e provide a RGB only SCART out .... doh!

    Cheers for any info

    Why not get an S-vid to Scart lead?
    I don't think many dvd players output S-vid through scart. As you point out, most have an S-vid DIN socket.

    Hi

    The Toshiba 210 can output S-Video via the Scart, so no reason to think the 220 wont either. I wouldnt have thought Toshiba would have changed this.

    The S-video out socket is normally fixed (obviously!) but you should be able to select RGB, S-Video, Composite for the Scart output. This was also possible on my old Panasonic A360.

    Hi Rashomon,

    My Sony DVP NS300 outputs S-Video via the Scart (you just select what you want from the DVD menu). I presume the new NS305 does so as well. Cracking player too. :)

    The Pioneer DV-444 can output S-video on the SCART too.

    AFAIK most DVD players can give S-video through the scart. There's either a menu option in the DVD menu, or a physical switch by the scart socket.

    I'm with you on that. Nearly all players will do s-video. Try and get it via scart if you can to allow auto AV switching and widescreen switching for NTSC titles.
