RGB for Xbox AND Pioneer DVD player?

I'm trying to think of a way of connecting both my Pioneer DVD player and my Xbox to my Panasonic 32" TV, which only has two SCART sockets - one RGB + one composite. I have the Xbox Advanced SCART cable, which supports RGB.

I was wondering, my Pioneer DVD has a second SCART socket so if I was to 'daisy-chain' the Advanced SCART cable from my Xbox through the second SCART on the DVD player, would this give me RGB output to the TV from both sources?

I'm thinking it will because both sources will connect to the TV through the RGB-capable SCART socket on the Pioneer DVD player.

Can anyone help here? Or am I talking nonsense?

I'm really hoping somebody's already done this!

It should work, although it might depend on the model of DVD player.

My 747 quite happily passes RGB through the SCART sockets, although I use it for my Tivo rather than the Xbox.

Just buy an RGB Scart splitter box mate, I got a nice little Hitachi one from Argos for £15.00. Havent detected any drop in picture quality.

The manual for the 656 says the second SCART socket can only output composite...it says nothing about loop through at all :confused:

I would have thought the 656 would do it as IIRC it is a more recent machine than the original 747...right?

Can't test this for a while because most of the kit is boxed up currently due to re-org / decorating of the lounge.

Did think about that option but I'd rather avoid it if I can :)
