    I'm trying to find a wife friendly solution so she can watch sky & dvd's without switching on the HCPC, my mate lent me his Iscan pro to see if would work, alas it does not, i connected it to port 3 on my PJ only the blue & green work, i suspect that the port is VGA only enabled.
    Anyone got any ideas how to connect both the HCPC & the Iscan Pro to port 4, connecting the HCPC to port 3 would be a way but requires major upheaval i don't want to do that, would a Barco switching box be the way to go? or would i lose quality by having another piece of kit connected in the signal path.
    Any help app'd
    Tim

    Tim, the pin wiring on Barco's port 3 is different to a standard VGA lead.
    I got hold of Barco's pin wiring layout and soldered a new nine pin plug on the end. I used a VGA to 5 BNC lead and just cut the BNC's off the end.
    Roland or Gordon should be able to get you a new VGA to "Barco-VGA" lead made up if need one.

    Hope this helps...:)
