    Does anyone know if it is possible to drive a SCART-type RGB signnal into the VGA port on a PWD7 with just a conversion cable? Wll it accept H on the composite feed, and V from blanking? Or is the amplitude too small, or the timing wrong? If anyone has tried this, what is the wiring of the conversion cable, or are these commercially available?
    Just want to try this before forking out on a JS converter.
    TIA.

    the JS tech RGB>VGA does that for you but there are cable solutions from QED and Keene have a search for syncblaster

    no it is an RGBHV/RGBS/YUV board with a 15pin D-sun to connect RGBscart still need a sync seperator QED and Keene make them: But the JS box is better. (the cables are powered and have really no advantage over JS box except price.

    If it's a YUV board then thats what my amp outputs, the component outs on it are labelled Y,Pr,PB (Denon 3802), which is just a different notation for YUV, i think.

    Or is there something that i'm just not getting that means it won't work :confused:

    You are correct YPbPr will work into an extra VGA board, (that auction is expensive tho AV-sales Additional PC slot £67.56) so at £50 already with £10 P+P and while to go...............

    Ah thank you, that makes things clearer now, my only reason for leaning towards a PW6 over the 7 was the ability to connect my compnent out to the vga input, but thats irrelevant now.

    67.56 is good price, but can only get it with the purchase of a screen, and PW7 is cheaper elsewhere

    add up all the bits you want inc delivery boards warranty etc then compare the 123 price with 2 more boards and 3 yr warranty is about the same aAV-sales for the same (and you get the better spec PWD7 from AV-sales rather than the discontinued PW7)
