    Hi,

    My new plasma arrived today, happy man !!!!

    Question though.

    I also bought a SYNCBLASTER CABLE SCART TO 5 BNC ( http://www.ilgroup.co.uk/avd/cabling.htm ), my problem is that the cable has BNC connectors and not BNC Phono points, will I be able to use a BNC Female to Phono Plug Adaptor to connect to my plasma.

    If not any suggestions ?

    Thanks in advance

    Yeah why not?
    Obviously the cable is designed for use with a projector or high end computer monitor.
    I would possibly consider snipping off the BNCs and maybe soldering on some good Phonos. Perhaps a bit neater.

    Thanks for the reply,

    I'm a bit worried about cutting them off as I only have a red,blue and green component bnc phono connections on the plasma, but if these female to bnc convertors work might look at snipping them and soldering good phono points on. :cool:

    Cheers on again

    Hi zorg,

    You seem to be a bit confused with your "bnc phonos."! You can get BNC to Phono adapters from www.rgbtosvideo.com - look in the cables section.

    Hi Steve,

    Your right confused & pulling my hair out trying to get it connected all day. Been to Sevenoaks & Hi-Fi Corner all gave me the wrong lead, even took my manual for the plasma with me :(

    I think i need RGB Scart to 3 RCA with the cable sync'd as well. Does this make sense ?

    Any help much appreciated.

    You do not need a Sync blaster cable, all you need are:-
    Scart to RGB + composite sync for your sky and video
    Component to d sub for you dvd if it gives component out and change the configuration in the menu for either RGB1 or RGB 2 from rgb to component.

    Hi,

    Thanks for the help.

    I take it you mean something like a QED AV1920 ,also would I be able to use a QED Q-Sync ActiveSync Extractor SCART to 15-pin D Connector to connect a rgb source to VGA connectors on my plasma ?

    Once again thanks in advance.
