    You can't get a straight through Scart to VGA cable, you'll need a converter. The concensus here is that the JS converters are by far the best, see link you need the RGB2VGA converter, these don't include the cables so you would also need a Scart to Scart cable and a VGA to VGA cable.

    rscott, can't you use the RGB component out and the CVBS for sync on the Pannies?

    Best regards David

    I can't coment from personal experience, but from what people have said on various threads here, the JS converters are of a lot better quality than their Keene counterparts, I for one am going down the JS route for an RGB to S-Video converter.

    The converters may well be better - however this is just a cable, which may well be all is required.

    Typically, those plasmas which "just" need a cable, you also need to wire several inputs up. Not a good idea for a flexable system. Personally, I'm using three video inputs to the screen, and this can only be done using the VGA socket.

    Therefore, best to opt for the RGB to Plasma VGA unit. It keeps the component free for progressive DVD players, and you've still got a video input for your VCR.

    All the best,

    Dr John Sim.
