    My long awaited Z2 is due to arrive next week to replade mu trusty Tosh MT3!

    I'm going to feed PAL prgressive component from a Sony DVD player (930). For watching TV from SKY I could use my exixting RGB to S Video converter.

    Can I feed RGB from the Scart out on the digibox to the DVI input on the Z2? If so - does anyone know if the leads advertised as being suitable for the Z1 will work?

    Thanks!

    Phil,
    Im hoping a scart to VGA and VGA to DVI will sort tis problem out for me. I have the leads already as soon as I get the Z2 Ill let you know if it works.

    The Sanyo wiring diagram for the DVI-RGB socket only shows the requirement for horizontal sync in addition to RGB - any one know if this can be picked up from the Sky Scart output without having to invest in a 'Synch Blaster lead'?!! Perhaps from compo video?
