    Hi all,

    At the moment i feed my DVD player into my ax10i then into my 42" panny 5.

    I am delighted with the picture this gives. I also run s-video from my sky+ directly to the plasma and depending on the channel the picture varies from excellent to woeful, e.g. this weekends rugby on beeb 1

    Would something like an iscan make any difference and if so what would be the best way to connect everything?

    Cheers

    Rob

    Sorry, forgot to ask,

    Could i use a vga cable from the iscan and have component and s-video going in to it?

    If so how would this picture compare with my component setup and which vga cable would be best.

    I believe i could then leave the plasma on PC and switch signal with the iscan

    TIA

    Rob

    s-video from sky+ to iscan
    component form dvd to iscan

    then vga to vga lead from iscan to plasma

    for the price you can pick up a iscan ultra now its well worth it.

    if your not happy with the s-video to iscan you could use a rgb to component converter from www.rgbtosvideo.com into iscan


    there is a very good quality 3 m vandamme vga for sale on classifieds ( its mine)

    What difference it makes to DVD depends on your DVD player. But on sky it should help, but it can't suddenly make a completely c**p broadcast squeaky clean, don't expect miracles. A demo might be handy before you lash out the £530. Where are you?
