    Hi guys,

    Is there a single solution to connect the following devices to component input please:

    - Sky+ with RGB output
    - DVD Recorder with RGB and Component Output
    - JVC SVHS Recorder with S-Video Output

    I'm managing it at the moment using Scart loop-through for the Sky+ via the DVD Recorder and a RGB - YUV converter. And not using the SVHS at all.

    Thanks in advance!

    Andy

    What DVD recorder have you got? If its one of the Panasonic's it should have a S-video input.

    Hi! Thanks for replying.

    It's the Sony RDR-GX700 and does come with S-Video input.

    But... how can I output that so I can see what's playing? I still need to convert the S-Video signal into YUV right..?

    If it has got a s-video input, the Sony recorder should upconvert the incoming s-video signal to component, all you need to do is alter the input label on the recorder eg. feed Sky+ into what might be AV2 [you'll need to check as I've got a Panasonic E55] which will be your main input for recording purposes. You should have secondary input(s), possibly AV3 which is the s-video and composite audio, which is what the SVHS will plug into. AV1 will be your main component output into the PW7. You shouldn't need the RGB-YUV converter as the recorder will convert all inputs to component

    Has anyone been able to convert RGB & S-Video signals to Component via a Sony DVDR?

    Specifically, the GX700 (or the GX300 which is pretty similar)?

    This would be the answer to my prayers :)

    Thanks for the info guys,

    Andy

    SORTED - yes it works, the RDR-GX700 will convert RGB input from Sky+ and output via component straight into the screen.

    However, the DVDR does need to be turned on for this to take place. Is that the same case for other recorders? Or can other recorders do the RGB - YUV conversion even in standby mode?

    Thanks,

    Andy

    It's the same for all recorders because as there is a conversion taking place therefore it has to be on to power this. Not a big deal really though to have it on.

    Agreed, it's no overhead at all.

    S-Video works perfectly too going from the SVHS recorder into the DVDR and then out via Component.

    Thanks for all your help.
