    I am planning a home cinema setup from scratch and want to make sure I get the connections just right. I have a Philips sattelite receiver that has two scarts as well as composite. I want to connect it to a Sony PJ possibly the hs50 and to a smaller LCD.


    Sattelite box outputs:

    TV Scart- supports RGB dont know about S-Video
    Video Scart- dont know whats it for
    Composite- yellow cinch

    I have also planned a Yamaha 1500/2500 type receiver.

    I want to use the RGB Scart as to get the best PQ but neither the receiver nor the PJ have scart inputs. What do I do?

    No, that cable is for boxes that can output component over a scart connector (such as a Netgem iPlayer freeview box).

    You'll need something like the JS Scart2RGB convertor, which will actually convert your SCART RGB to component. JS are a forum sponsor - check out their homepage.

    I presume that the composite to component upconversion that amps of recent feature is simply a convenience feature and does not improve quality. Am I right?

    In that respect would using RGB to Component (YUV) Video Converter (I presume that is what you meant) yield a better picture?

    Yes, pretty much just a convenience feature. RGB-YUV will almost certainly give a better result that converting the composite.

    Thought so...

    what about a way to output from the RGB Scart to both the PJ and LCD (not simultaneously) cause I dont want to use the composite. Is there such a thing as RGB Scart splitter 1 in---2 out
