    Hi,

    Can anyone help, I have a PACE digital TV box - supplied throgh NTL.

    I am not sure of the specific model no. but it has only two scart leads at the back (no other connections at all).

    Before I buy my cables, I wondered if anybody knew whether one of these was an RGB - neither are laballed as being so.

    Many thanks for any help!

    If it's the same as my TeleWest Pace box (4000 and something, last time I looked), it does support RGB but it needs to be enabled in the setup menu.

    Yeah, I thought that might be the case. I am probably being very stupid but I can not seem to get into the setup menu- How do you do this?

    (N.B. the model is DI4010-N - How hard can it be to read a number!! This is definite this time though!):clown:

    Yep, Brilliant, Got It!!!

    Thanks for that. One last question, if I am using an RGB scart into 3 component video ouputs from the box (for use with a projector). How do I get my audio out?

    Do I use the other scart on the box?

    Many Thanks.

    Steve.........

    Assuming you have no phonos, yes. If you need it for VCR then Maplins, Keene, and others sell a breakout scart. It has a plug and pas-through socket, 21 pin, and on the top is stereo audio, composite vid and probably s-vid, but don't get any ideas there, the s-vid won't work...

    MAW - Fantastic - Just the jobby. Thanks.


    Where is the place to get good value/quality RGB/SCART leads.
    I have seen on Keene.co.uk that they do some that do not look a too bader price - any experience?

    I know you can spend a lot of money on leads (been looking at the SUPRA AV3) but if an un-named model is going to be nearly as good then I think that will suffice!

    Cheers.................

    Personally I find a scart at around £15 odd quid, perhaps £20 is as good as you can tell no more difference, unless your TV is huge.

    I got one like this which I've never seen anywhere else. It's fairly thick (usually a good sign) and it has little projections on the Scart plugs that allows them to clip into the sockets. They need quite a firm pull to remove so your spouse won't accidentally dislodge them with the vacuum cleaner as mine does! (How many times have I come home to a blank picture or no audio..).
