    Apart from the Philips DTR 1500, which Freeview boxes have a RGB in on the VCR scart? This is so I can feed a RGB signal from a DVD player through the box to the TV.

    Horneydragon,

    What is the "IIRC" - is that a new model of the 221T? Do you know if it supports S-Video in/out as well on the VCR scart?

    From the Nokia web site it says the 221T is only CVBS on the VCR scart. I'm confused.

    Ah, thanks. I guess I haven't read enough posts to pick that one up (IIRC).

    AFAIK the 211T is only Composite on the VCR SCART... :)

    Netgem i-Player is RGB-in only, use it as a passthrough as well.

    Kevo,

    What do you think of the Pioneer box? I'm thinking of getting that one; I like that it does S-video and RGB input on the second SCART. Neither the Philips or Sony boxes do this; nor the Nokia; I'm not sure about the Netgem (I've looked at the manual and specifications but it doesn't seem to say).

    Recommended. :smashin:

    Much more connectivity options.

    Pic is excellent and mheg text is v fast.

    Also has useful subtitle and aspect ratio buttons on remote, so no more navigating through menus to get to 'em.

    Remote can also control basic TV functions on other brand TVs.

    Has a 'snapshot feature' where you can freeze a TV image and store it. Gimmicky but am sure it'll come in useful one day!

    I saw the Pioneer in Curry's. It's a lot smaller than what I thought it would be.

    I wish I had waited for that rather than the Phillips DTR 1500, as it is playing up.

    Can anyone confirm that the DBRTF100GB does have RGB in on the VCR scart?

    I have been told it doesn't.

    Per the manual - yes, the Pioneer DBR-TF100 has RGB and S-video input on the "VCR" SCART. For output, it has S-Video but not RGB on the VCR start.

    The TV SCART has RGB as well as S-Video Output.

    You can go to
    http://www.pioneer.co.uk/uk/support_manuals.jsp?category=support/manuals

    And find the manual from there (enter the database and put in the model number).

    Thanks. I don't need RGB out on the VCR scart. Just RGB in is fine.
