    Does anyone know if the HX900 will output component when you have a scart
    input (L3). The reason is I want to use it to convert scart RGB to component,
    since projector I want to hook up to only has component & DVI ins.

    Thanks,

    Tim.

    Hi,

    Yes I'm sure it will. I have the RDR-GX700 and it successfully converts composite, S-Video and RGB input signals to component output.

    Note that the unit needs to be turned on for this to work.

    Cheers,

    Andy

    Yes it will - although, as with all DVD recorders that do this, the results vary depending upon your machine/tastes. Some people swear they see a dramatic improvement, others say the converted RGB picture is 'like composite'. I would say try it and see - if you not happy you could always buy a dedicated RGB to Component converter.
