SCART Auto-switch - will I lose PQ?


Standard Member
Hi, I'm thinking of adding a freeview box to my setup. The signal chain, all SCART, is currently:

NTL cablebox > Panny E55 DVD > Aspect Ratio Controller (brilliant bit of kit....) > JS RGB/VGA box then VGA cable to 42PWD7.

The E55 also has a separate component connection to the Plasma

The SCART autoswitch would go after the NTL cablebox.

I'm getting worried about the number of SCART connectors - I'd appreciate any opinions about possible PQ loss (I'm using good quality SCART cables), or any suggestions about alternative ways of incorporating the freeview box into the system.

Thanks in advance!

As you already have an RGB to VGA converter you know the quality of the JS kit! Their scart master controller is just as good - the PQ is maintained.
