    Can anyone recommend a good scart to RGBS 4BNC cable
    Im trying to connect my sky box to an iscan HD scaler.
    Also, is it safe to use a scart "double adaptor" to connect the sky to the tv aswell (the scaler is upstairs feeding a barco projector) (the sky box and tv are downstairs)
    The sky box is a panasonic and is 5 years old if this is important.
    The RGBS cable will have to be around 15m long.
    Also, i will have to bring sound from the sky box upstairs aswell. Any thoughts????... where to connect the sound cables to at sky box????

    Thanks y'all

    Hello tommo2

    15m is a pretty long run for the RGB SCART output from SKY - you may need to introduce a signal amp if you see any degradation once you install a long cable.

    SCART RGB Distribution - a JS-Technology Active Video buffer will deliver two clean SCART RGB Outputs from a single SCART RGB Input; see http://www.js-technology.com/produc...id=51&osCsid=3c7bf4fb80bec23ceea026d0c8d2a102

    SCART to 4BNC cable - a VanDamme Red Series mini 75 ohm multicore is a good choice; though as above 15m is a long run even with the JS Technology RGB splitter in-line to ensure your signal is on spec to begin with.

    What may be a better option is a short SCART to 4BNC cable on the Mini Red cable and then a long run of the Red Series (full size) cable terminated as 4BNC(F) to 4BNC Male; that way the signal ought to show less drop off over the larger diameter cable.

    Video Line Driver - if you do see some drop off over the 15m run you will need to introduce a line driver at the head end of the cable.

    Audio - I take it your working with a SKY not a SKY+ box; again a VanDamme audio cable will do the trick. Do you need to 'split' the Stereo audio Output from the RCA sockets on the SKY box or does the 'local' TV take its signal from the SCART socket?

    Best regards

    Joe
