    I could use some help.

    A month ago I took delivery of a fujitsu 4242 plasma screen. Its got a wide range of inputs - composite, S-Video, component video (5 BNC), VGA, DVI-D.

    The guys that supplied it to be also supplied a 'quattro pro' box, which switches between SCART outputs of sky, my dvd & video player.

    Unfortunately (My suppliers told me after purchase), the component video slot on the 4242 accepts US format component video only. So at best I can only use the S-video socket on the plasma screen.

    I am told that to get a better picture I have to buy a progressive scan converter to sit between the SCART output of the quattro box and the VGA input.

    Is this the case? Will my picture be better with a converter? (I'm underwhelmed with S-Video) What are the best progressive scan converter products to buy?

    Any help would be appreciated, as at the moment I'm at the mercy of my suppliers

    Mike

    All this sounds a bit strange.

    I'm not at all sure that I'd be wanting to use an external video processor of any kind other than a simple VGA convertor as this particular plasma unlike most is actually not a progressive display, it is an interlaced display.

    Subject to the views of the experts around here I would have thought that one of the SVideo to RGB convertors would be the way to go. ( www.svideotorgb.com )

    BTW, not sure what they mean by 'US format component', does your DVD player offer component outputs ?

    I've got a Fujitsu PDS4222.

    The 5-way input is not a component video input but RGB with Vertical & Horizontal synch.

    You can buy an RGB-scart to 5 way RGB (seperate V & H synchs) from Keene electronics I think.

    Other option is to buy an RGB scart to VGA converter and connect that way (I think that is the better option - John Sim does one I think).

    BTW does anyone know if the Fujitsu 4222 will accept a Prog-scan input - It do have seperate (3 way) component video inputs also.
