    I know this belongs elsewhere, but this info could be of most interest to Plasma owners.

    The latest software 4.2.2 for the Netgem i-Player now supports component output. I have tried this into the iScan Ultra and it works just fine.

    Rob100,
    What cable did you use to connect the netgem to the iscan?
    Cheers, Lee

    I tried this a while ago with a scart to component cable into my panny 6. I found the picture was much softer when compared to the straight scart connection. So that's another unused cable in the pile :rolleyes:

    I'd guess an iScan ultra would alleviate the softness, or maybe it's just my setup.

    Cheers, Carl.

    I used an adapter from Keene and a std component video cable.

    See www.keene.co.uk and do a search for a KA150. Alternatively I think a cable such as their SBB72 would do the trick.

    Rob100,
    That was the exact item I was looking at on Keene. Can you comment on the picture quality. I currently have a panasonic freeview box thru a RGB2YUV convertor to an iscan, then onto the panny 4. Are you still using the i-Player, and what is your general impression of the picture quality? You aren't using an iscan by any chance are you?
    Cheers, Lee

    I'm using a cheapo Vivanco scart to 3 RCA lead I bought in Sevenoaks (the shop not the town) and was much impressed with the PQ. I now have it connected to a H3DII card for processing, then to a Pioneer 433 and the PQ is excellent. Plan to get a better cable, but even with the cheapy the component out via the PC card is clearly better than scart RGB option on the Netgem .

    The iscan can't do all the H3DII can do but you should see an improvement.
