    CALLING ALL SCART GEEKS :p

    No seriously .... I plan to use my Cable NTL box with my new projector. I am moving in a few weeks and was fortunate enough to have a nice builder that has run component and s-video leads for me acroos the walls and ceiling before he put the walls up. I purchased the leads and they are good quality.

    I am having two cable boxes. One for recording through the JVC HD and SVHS recorder and the other direct to the projector through the amp (switiching).

    I contacted Pace who supply the cable boxes to NTL as they only have scart output.

    Pace sent these spcs of the two scarts ...

    Pip,

    As far as I know the cable box will output rgb on the scart connector. You can feed that directly to the projector if your projector has a scart input. If it doesn't, the best thing to do is to get a rgb to s-video convertors (from www.rgbtosvideo.) and run that to the amplifier. You'll have to get a second one to get the best recordings on the s-video vcr anyway.
