    I've just upgraded from an all-in-one Sony to a new separates system. This has meant a
    new toshiba 340E dvd player which I bought believing it to have S-video out - however
    it doesn't it.

    So can anyone shed any lighton how to connect this up to my projector?

    The toshiba 340E DVD player has scart (rgb) out and component (3x rca)
    out (Y, Pb, Pr) .

    I need to connect to the NEC VT540 D sub connector this accepts RGB and
    Cr, Y Cb sync on green.

    Can anyone please help? This is driving my mad -all this new kit and I don't know
    how to make it all work!

    HELP

    Doesn't it take component via the d-sub connector or isn't there an adapter for it?

    Can you get s-video from the scart output from the player? If so, you just need a scart to s-video lead, or a rgb scart to s-video adapter. The adapters can cost more than the player though.

    Nope friad not no s-vid through the scart, since the projector will accept rgb if itspossible to use this, then I expect thats the best route....unless someone more wise then me tells
    me otherwise!

    Best

    Thanks, any idea of the pin-out of such a cable? I need a long one
    (like 10M) and am frightened to ask NEC how much they want for
    such a beast!!!

    It's possible that it's just a short cable, so all you need to do is buy a female to male vga cable to connect it to, or a male phono to female phone component cable. Having two cables instead of one isn't ideal, but I doubt you'll see a diference in picture quality.

    Without doing a web search I couldn't tell you the pin-out, but if the cable isnt that expensive, you could always test for continuety between each pin and component cable so that you know what cables went where.
