    You need a converter from John Sim to get from the scart to the VGA input. There are many references to it on the boards. Best to contact JS direct.

    you can use a SCART-to-RCA adapter which will connect #2 of your digibox to #7 of yor plasma, you'll need the adapter and a set of RCA cables (same as the ones usually shipped with DVD players,VCRs etc)

    but to take advantage of RGB, use the JS converter as mentioned above, #2 of your digibox connects to this converter then from the converter you'll connect to #2 (for video) and 3 (for audio) of your plasma, here's a link to the converter http://www.av-sales.com/html/rgb_to_plasma_scrren_vga.html ,with this you'll need a SCART cable and a VGA cable

    there's also a similar converter as above but instead of connecting to #2 of your plasma, you'll connect to #4 (componenent connection), here you'll need the SCART cable and component video cable (plus 2 more RCA for sound in case), here's the link http://www.av-sales.com/html/rgb_to_component.html

    better to talk to av-sales so they can help you sort it out

    RGB to VGA will give the best obtainable picture quality though.
