    Hi

    I have an old Pioneer 515 and still enjoy watching the big disc's. I want to connect this up to my PJ and although it does not have an S-VHS O/P i was wondering if it does output an RGB signal through the scart connector or is it not connected ?!

    Cheers:D

    Hi Vorlon,

    Video on laserdisc is stored in analogue composite form so you won't get RGB from your Scart I'm afraid.

    I'm sure my Sony 650MDP had RGB out but it was a very long time ago.

    Hi,

    Your Pioneer won't have an rgb output... just composite, as Steve suggested. Some LD players from Sony and Philips did have internal converters for an rgb output but it's not really worth trying to convert from composite to rgb... just use the composite input on the projector.

    Thanks guy's. Thought that might be the case, I was hoping to get the Denon AVR3803 and was therefore gonna try and use it's onboard composite/RGB/component converter circuit. Will try feeding the composite signal in and see if it can send a decent image up to the PJ !

    Thanks again.

    The picture from the composite input on my Sanyo Z1 is awful. So if the Denon has a better convertor than your PJ it's well worth it.
