    I am currently using this SCART Sync Separartor to connect the 2 together. I was wondering if I would get an improved picture by using a direct S-video connection or the more expensive JS converter that I have seen mentioned.

    I have a Toshiba 42" (The panny 5 series clone)

    Can anyone please advise?

    I am using the very same SCART Sync Separartor for connecting my Sky+ box to the VGA port on my Panasonic PWD6. I find the picture excellent, although obviously depending on which channel I'm watching. I am very happy with it.
    This particular sync separator is also £70 cheaper than the JS box.

    Welcome to the Forums. One slight problem - as you may notice, the user name you have chosen is remarkably similar to my own. Perhaps you might like to choose another?

    One thing, I have found the JS box to have a much superior picture quality than the cheaper synch separators. (Of course it should be for the extra money!)

    AV junky, I dont think its as easy as just choosing another name, He'd most likely have to get an admin to change the name for him. Anyway, do you have a copyright on it or something ;)

    That's still 4/5 months less than I've been using for, and you'll notice that my 'name-sake' has not exactly been an active poster during their time as a member.

    And thanks, I am aware of the procedure necessary for changing the user name. I posted the message to give the member in question the chance to request that their name be changed themselves.

    A member's user name is not just a log-in necessity, it's a name that regular users recognise. We all strive to develop a reputation as a valuable contributor to the Forums.

    Well, obviously as you are so much more important than him (as you have been here a bit longer and made more posts) AV junkie should get his name changed right away :rolleyes:

    Since when have these forums ranked members by order of importance based on number of posts and length of time registered? I have been registered for two months longer than AV junky, does that mean I am more important? :D
