sorry if this is a daft question regarding connecting sky+

which would give a better picture

rgb converted to component to the component input board

or

rgb converted to VGA to the standard VGA inut ?

I`ve tried both and thought the VGA option was definately better !

The only downside is that you lose colour adjustment.

RGB connected to the VGA input is still the best. RGB converted to component, with the right converter, is slighty softer. This can be an advantage as it does help smooth out some of the encoding noise from Sky giving a cine--matic* effect, but still sharp enough for all the detail.

All the best,

Dr John Sim.

Thank you for these answers, I needed to know this!

One thing I am not clear on, though

Do I need to convert the Scart RGB output on Sky plus to VGA using a convertor, or would a cable with RGB Scart on end and 15pin VGA on the other be sufficient?

Cheers

Ive got the same question. I just got a SCART - 15 pin male RGB from keene electronics (wired RGsB - don't know what the s means???) and it doesn't work. I thought it would,
Anyone know why not??

Paul,

To get the best picture quality from Sky you need to use RGB Scart into one of Dr John's RGB-VGA converters. You won't regret it! ;)

diabolik,

I think RGsB means sync on green, whereas you need seperate sync for Sky signals. Hope this helps.
