    What is the best way to go from the scart on the NTL box to S-video on my TV card in my PC.

    Thanks

    I'm not familiar with NTL boxes but based on other digibox designs I'd say it is most unlikey to have an s-video output on the scart socket. In which case you will need to purchase an RGB to S-Video converter.

    That will not work as it only transfers a SVid signal from a STB, and none of the NTL boxes transmit SVid. So what you need is something to convert RGB to SVid

    First issue ntl Pace STB's do have S-Video output, I know because I have one but they are very rare these days. The original STB's also have stereo audio output on the back via RCA connectors. I wouldn't even know if you could request these old issue boxes, or indeed whether you would want to.
