Hi
About to buy a panny 42PWD7. Both my DVD player and sat decoder have scart RGB. Neither have component out. The panny has the standard VGA board and the component board. Any suggestions for the best setup?

put a scart board in it for £120 and jobs done

or daisy chain them with scart and use a js tech RGB to VGA converter and take them into the VGA port

Its a DVD player. I believe the JS RGB to VGA is a better option than the panny Scart board? Does anyone know if the VGA on the panny through the JS will do higher res images like HD downscaling?

Hi

I went the JS RGB to VGA route and am very happy with the results :smashin:

I can't answer the HD question though :)

i 'think' you need an HDMI to VGA converter to do that....but it would do via the component board

I would go the JS route aswell.

I daisy chain my DVD player through my SKy box into the JS box > VGA on Plasma - results are brilliant!

The JS only allows me to hook up one device right? I got DVD and sat decoder - both need to be hooked up with RGB. Daisy chaining will not give RGB output on both surely?

either the scart extender or the via sky route will give RGB (the second scart on sky passes RGB thru though it doesn't ouptut rgb)

Excuse my ignorance but is a scart extender just a device that allows you to plug in 2 scart plugs and has one output scart? 2 in and 1 out? Is that the "Master SCART Controller" on the JS website?

my Sky box passes RGB through from the DVD player to the JS box no problems.

Simple test to know if ur getting RGB or not is your get a picture on your Panny.
