I've been using this pj happily for a couple of years now but I was thinking of upgrading my DVD player to one that will use progressive scan. However, I've discovered I need a SIC-HS20 cable to connect it to the pj, and they are about £80 which knocks things way out of my budget at the moment. I was wondering if there is an alternative cheaper version of the cable available, or if I'm stuck with having to buy the Sony one?

Any advice appreciated



I am also looking for the same cable, there was a thread on the forum which had the pinouts from the pj multi input but that was posted back in 2002. Not sure if the guy managed to make the DIY cable he wanted
I decided to leave the re-pinning of the supplied cable to someone who has the proper tools. He's going to open the supplied composite and audio cable up tomorrow and see what can be done to swap the wires over to let them take a component signal. He's confident that this can be done.

Watch this space...
great news, i managed to get a component cable cheap from ebay- but i wouldt mind using the supplied composite cable and turning into a vga cable if this can be done?
I did have a spare one of these from back when I had my HS1

If I can find it, you can have it for a fiver! ;)
