Hello, I have a JS Technology RGB to Plasma unit for my panel. Is it O.K to leave the JS Technology unit ON all the time? I keep forgetting to switch the bloody thing on and think I've got a fault on the system, ( I'm getting old, thats my excuse ).
Many thanks ,

Mine has been on for 11 months now.
Don't think it's been off.

Thanks for the quick reply MAW, just what I wanted to hear.
Can you answer another question please? Is it possible to change the frequencies the plasma unit picks up from one of these units. Mine is a low 15khz by 49.9 hz, this seems very low compared to other sources. Any way to get an increase?
Cheers,

Not from this unit, it's not what it does. You need a line doubler to do that, like a pro-v or an iscan. PQ improvement is not automatic. Your JS box is correctly termed a syncronisation extractor, I think!! All it does is get the sync signal out of the RGB and sync on composite signal, and convert that to Hsync and Vsync, preventing you from using up 2 valuable inputs (YUV and composite) on your plasma, and using an input normally otherwise vacant. Line doublers double the frequency, enabling many more displays to sync to the signal. If yours can manage the signal as it is, there is small agin from simply increasing it. Iscan does a bunch more stuff, but at a price.

Yes, fine to leave it on 24/7. We use a very safe transformer inside, it's a fully sealed transformer. Additionally, you've got two fuses inside the unit on the power input, and one on the plug.

The unit is only designed to work at 15kHz, which is what sources such as Sky and normal DVD players produce via SCART. So the fact that the screen is reporting 15kHz show it's working perfectly.

All the best,

Arty,
with one caveat as one person just pointed out:
The Fire Brigade ALWAYS advise people to switch kit off at night; and some insurance policies may be sticky on this subject too.

All the best,

John.
