    I was just about to order one of these convertors from keene when I came across a post under Plasmas & LCD that was saying that they didn't improve things much!

    Is anyone here converting RGB to Component on Z2 or other PJ, that could provide some insight! I was going to use Mark Grants component cable back to PJ. Please help:confused:

    I'm using an RGBscart to component convertor from CYP for TV to my Infocus 5700. It is a major improvement on my previous scart to s video convertor, although this is probably as much due to the superior faroudja de-interlacer in the PJ, compared to my previous Panasonic PTAE 100

    Thanks for the reply, I have since decided to go RGB->DVI route.

    I've just spent quite a bit of time getting the right solution for my NTL box to my Sharp VX-Z91E PJ.

    I trialled the QED scart to d-sub powered box and found it to provide stunning TV pictures depending on the quality of the channel/broadcast. However at £150 + the price of the d-sub cable I didn't count it as good value for the amount of TV viewing I am expecting to due on the PJ.

    Next up was going to be the Synchblaster self-powered scart to d-sub cable. At £90 this seemed like the cheapest option for a permanent connection. However I was told at my local specialists (Powerplant in Hove) that this would pale in comparison with the QED lead.

    I discussed the amount of use I would give to TV through the PJ and also the cost involved in running a second pricey cable. Lester (he da man) suggested a powered scart to component box into which the NTL box could be permanently plugged, but whenever I do want to watch Pay Per View or TV on the PJ I can switch the component leads from the back of the DVD to the powered box. Ingenious - and I don't have to run another cable.

    The picture is as good if not better than the QED cable, and at £80 comes in under what I expected, and I also don't have to run a second lead. To top it all I can plug any gaming console in with the right adaptor to get the best picture possible from it...

    Hope my findings help... just wish I could remember the brand name of the box... (there are several options of this nature)
