    I think scart is a good system. My digital set top box,
    blaupunkt (panasonic) SVHS and my Grundig TV all have 2
    SCARTS all using RGB great picture, GOOD CABLES WITH ALL
    21 PINS wired up a must.

    Why do we use RGB? well that's the way humans see
    we only have 3 pigments (the cones) in our eye balls, those pigments are Red Green and Blue.

    OH YES, ***ALL*** TV'S SETS EVENTUALLY convert the picture to
    RGB for the 3 CRT GUN. (only talking about crt technology)

    NTSC PAL SECAM whatever, all start at the source (camera, telecine) as RGB and end up as RGB on the CRT face.So
    your component signal is converted to RGB anyhow in the
    display device.
    If the system you use is good quality with low loss,
    low phase change and high bandwidth RGB or
    component should both give very good results
    I use RG6 quad sheild for my video cables - I make
    them myself.

    just as an interesting tid bit, octopus have 20 pigments
    in there eye balls!!

    In an ideal world there would be no PAL, NTSC OR SECAM
    every thing would be RGB and non interlaced (progressive)

    PAL, NTSC and SECAM (analogue) MPEG DV (digital)
    can be seen as forms of video compression.

    Compression storage:-
    Beta/VHS/SVHS/V8/HI8 - YV (svideo) storage - analogue tape

    DVD is component based, though film base material
    is converted from film which is RGB. - I won't go into
    the MPEG part here as I will be here for days.

    VGA/SVGA/XGS etc etc RGBHV :- P.C/MAC based systems
    past about 1988 are non-interlaced (progressive).

    For a DVD that does both RGB and component I would
    recommend the sony DVP-NS930V.

    for techs like myself try

    for a component to RGB circuit goto
    http://elm-chan.org/works/yuv2rgb/report.html
    the total cost for this circuit is about A$40 or US60.
    I also might be able to get my old 1998 grundig to do
    576p - will let you all know about his.

    Why sent a PM and Reply in the thread wtih exactly the same response?

    I ask if it's an advert because your thread just seemed a little odd, in response of lieu of nothing.

    Advertish because of...

    "for a component to RGB circuit goto
    http://elm-chan.org/works/yuv2rgb/report.htm
    the total cost for this circuit is about A$40 or US60.
    I also might be able to get my old 1998 grundig to do

    I think SCART sucks. Well, the physical connectors anyway. I've lost count of the number of expletives I've uttered over the years whilst trying to get those damn connectors to go in. Long live BNC connectors !

    Johns link doesn't work for me, try this one.

    http://elm-chan.org/works/yuv2rgb/report.html

    Don't see anything to buy there, just useful circuit diagrams and techy info.

    Cheers, Carl.

    yes BNC if my fav also, I fixed the URL above my mistake

    http://elm-chan.org/works/yuv2rgb/report.html

    forgot the l in html, I feed my old panasonic PT-106 using
    BNC connectors, from my Nintaus PDVD-N9769 DVD player
    the connector on the DVD is a HD 15.

    for anybody in AU the Nintaus PDVD-N9769 DVD is very good for the money.
    VGA out, progressive or interlaced, svideo, component out
    progressive or interlaced and composite.
