NTL cable tv to InFocus X1


Standard Member
It has two scart sockets on the back, one for video one for tv.

I'm presuming you mean if it has an option in the settings for svideo output ?
The signal the box outputs ?

So composite / RGB output via the scart requires more than just that cable ?

SCART sockets are just connectors - they can carry composite, S-Video or RGB signals. The hardware inside my TeleWest Pace box won't output an S-Video signal at all - there are settings in the TeleWest menus to chose between 'video' or 'RGB' but not S-video.
If I connect a SCART>S-video lead to the S-video input on my TV I get a black and white picture (IIRC).
If there is an S-Video option in the NTL menus then that lead will work.
Alternatively you could use the Video SCART socket with a SCART to composite lead to the composite input on your projector, that would work but not look that great.
If you want s-video then you would need a convertor like this http://www.keene.co.uk/cgi-bin/bigcodesearch.pl?RGB2S or this http://www.js-technology.com/rgb-svideo/index.htm
