    I'm after a scaler with 2 or 3 scart inputs and able to output on DVI at 1368 x 768, the inputs will be Sky+ and a DVD player, the DVD player is a pioneer 737 so I may use the components to the scaler if possible.

    Any ideas of what to use would be greatly appreciated.

    Apologies if the answers are here already, if they are then links will do me fine.

    Cheers,
    Rich

    Lumagen DVI or above will do what you want. I'd suggest using component from the DVD player. You can find details on my website.

    Ouch, I had a look and that looks the business, it's a bit more than I was hoping to pay though.

    Anything that isn't so hardcore that would do the job ??

    Cheers,
    Richard.

    There's lots of scalers around, but few as good as Lumagen. At the risk of setting something else off, you could always consider an ImageMAX, Focus Enhancements, or Zinwell scaler. Most scalers don't have scarts.

    Thanks guys, I'll go do some homework on these.

    I've also notived that the momitsu V880n is supposed to be able to upscale an external source through a module that can be added on, no sign of this module yet though.

    Cheers,
    Richard.
