    I can highly recommend the JS-Tech converter as I have used both the RGB>VGA & RGB>YUV in the past. They are expensive but do give the best possible PQ compared to the cheaper versions.
    There are scart to YUV leads available as some (but only a very few) bits of equipment can accept YUV component via scart. The Netgem iPlayer Freeview box does output YUV over scart and a few Lowe TVs can accept YUV via scart (probably a few others as well but these are the only ones I know about). But these are the exception to the rule and in all other cercumstances you will need a converter such as those from JS-Tech.

    Yes, as I said the cables do exist but wont work to connect a Sky RGBs scart output to a YUV component input on an LCD screen. Sky would need scart to 4 phono cables and the LCD screen would need to be able to accept RGBs via its YUV input (menu configurable maybe?).
    The cable you have linked to would work with the Netgem or Lowe I mentioned above or with any equipment that works with RGsB equipment, but NOT Sky.

    All so found this one

    SCART 5 PHONO COMPONENT & AUDIO OUT OF SCART
    New to the SBB range, we can now offer Scart to five RCA phono wired for component video plus stereo audio.
    Available wired with the audio signal as an input or output from the scart

    The scart to 4 phono plugs will only work IF the component input on the LCD screen can be set to accept RGBs - AND ONLY IF!!!!!
    But it will not carry any sound to the screen. You would need a scart to RGBs (4 phono leads) plus red & white phonos for audio - a total of 6 phono plugs.

    If the component inputs on your LCD can not be configured for different input signals then the only way to get them to accept the output from a Sky box is to put the output through a converter such as the JS-Tech boxes mentioned earlier in this thread.

    As posted in the Tevion LCD thread:

    Well I've never seen the Keene converter in action so can't really say how well it works. But at half the price of the JS-Tech converter it must have compromises in performance.
    At the end of the day you are trying to improve on what the RGB scart input on your LCD offers and therefore I assume that the PQ is important to you, therefore I'm afraid the advise is to buy the best converter you can and IMO that is the JS-Tech one! If you do go with the Keene converter and don't like the quality then you will need to buy the JS-Tech one and sell on the Keene at a loss, therefore it will have cost more money. But if the Keene is good enough for you you will have saved a fair bit. Decisions, decisions. This hobby is never easy but always far from cheap!
