because, whilst what you say is entirely true, in "popular" terminology (which includes labelling of equipment and references in manuals and specifications), that is what the term "component" means. In the same "popular" terminology, "component" does NOT (rightly or wrongly) include RGB nor SVideo nor anything else.Chris Muriel said:In this thread every use of the term "component" has obviously been referring to YPbPr...
Yes it has just become common usage to only refer to YPbPr as component of course. At least on this forum people spell component correctly.Chris Muriel said:In this thread every use of the term "component" has obviously been referring to YPbPr.
Technicially speaking RGB is itself also a form of component video.

The projector might be able to accept the RGB from the SCART with an appropriate SCART to BNC cable if the proj can accept 'sync on green' also known as RGsB. It will also need to accept a sync signal lower than TTL level - some display devices that can accept sync on grren need a TTL level sync signal that most SCART RGB outputs can't provide.pscamm said:Thanks all for enlightening me, im assuming the term 'RGB' is refering to an RGB enabled scart ?? (correct me if im wrong, im pretty new to all this stuff).
My projector has the following connection types : (except for a DVI which is hooked to DVD player) there is component (RCA YPbPr), BNC (YPbPr/RGBHV), RS-232, S-Video and Composite. In you guy's superior experience, how would you hook up a freeview box for best pic quality.
Your all great, Cheers
That's a little misleading. You can get a Scart to RGB "breakout" cable. You can't get a Scart to "component" cable. You'd need an electronic adapter to achieve that conversion.SCART to component cable (rare but available) with separate phono to BNC adapters
That's interesting. How does the iPlayer+ output component through Scart then?SamRadford said:
You're right.SamRadford said:
Scart to component cables (which AFAIK) are wired the same as Scart to RGB will as you say not convert an ordinary scart output to component. There are however one or two STBs/PVRs (e.g. The Topfield) which do output Component through the Scart so in those cases all you need is the cable.SamRadford said:
Isn't the above a last resort, given the inferior quality of composite? Pubs and Clubs are likely to have huge screens too, where the quality of the incoming signal (I am guessing) is even more important.1st Digital said:On Most Comercial Rigs (pubs/clubs) I Have Encountered This Problem And There Is A Lacking Of Outputs On Most High Street Equipment However We Overcome This By Connecting The Freeview To A VCR Utilising The RGB Via Scart Then Using Not Only The Composite (Video) Only But The Audio L & R
