    Hi
    As part of my upcoming MCE PC setup, I have been doing some research...

    Can anyone tell me if they have connected their Samsung STB to an ATI card (or other) using a scart to s-video cable? Do you get colour or black and white on the PC?

    If B&W did you use a convertor (say from Maplins) to sort this out?

    Cheers

    Does your STB actually have s-video output on the SCART? If not you will just get B&W & will need an RGB -> s-video converter (assuming your STB does RGB output).

    NTL STB only outputs RGB over Scart (or composite obviously)
    You'll need an RGB-svideo converter. Maplins one should do the job :)
