    Can anyone advise if it is easy to connect my Relysis with a TV tuner RGA input to my freeview box with RGA input /output and component connections?
    Just connecting the ariel as per normal does not work and there are no scart inputs on the LCD.
    Help out a real dummy please? :lease:

    Is it the 17" Relisys LCD?
    This has S-video connections, does your freeview box have an s-video connection, or the ability to output s-video through the scart connection?

    Yes it is the 17 inch version. It has S- video input and a scart on the freeview box. Do i need an S-video to scart adapter as the best option as these are about £25??

    Many thanks

    Check the manual of the freeview box, or look in the setup menu to check if it will output S-Video through the Scart socket, if it will then a scart -> S-video with 2xphono connections will work like this:

    Or this:

    plus s-video & phono cables, if the worst coms to the worst then you could always connect with this adapter via composite (single phono) but this will be the worst picture quality.

    Or
    If the freeview outputs RGB scart only, then you could get a convertor box to change the signal to something else ( Component, S-video, even VGA).

    But this is quite expensive.

    So first check if the freeview box will output s-video via its scart socket.
