    Does anyone know for sure?

    I have a Vision 4230 and have considered using the JS Technology RGB-to-VGA converter for Sky+, but no-one connected with the importer/distributor of the Vision can assure me it will definitely work. Even JS have said there might be issues, although they said (not surprisingly) they weren't that familiar with the Vision.

    I know it would be easier to loop the DVD through the Sky box (both RGB) to a JS RGB-to-Component convertor, but by doing this it would mean they share the same input, and so I wouldn't be able have different video settings for each source.

    BTW: I have also found the screen won't accept PAL progressive from a DVD player :mad: (several tried, thank-you 7oaks for your patience) although it will take NTSC progressive! Perhaps the screen sees the 60Hz as a computer refresh rate??

    any help appreciated,

    cheers,

    You need tocheck the manual, it needs to have the ability to accept horizontal sync of 15.625 khz, that's what scart puts out. The converter merely separates the sync, no other trickery. The performance of such devices varies from screen to screen too, so no guarantees even if you do get a picture. They happen to work well with Panasonic, which is how they get so many mentions here.

    Thanks MAW, I'd pretty much got that far.

    The screen's manual says h.sync from 15KHz to 75K, but as you say that won't guarantee it works with the JS.

    cheers,

    Buy one used in classifieds, and sell it again if it's no help. That's got to be the cost effective solution.

    I'd need to get a VGA to VGA of reasonable quality, too.
    Could be an expensive experiment :eek:

    I'm hoping someone will have tried it already,

    cheers,
