    I may have shot myself in the foot!!

    Ive channelled in VGA and was assuming that with the imminent arrival of a z2 I would be able to use this:

    SBB92S SCART - 15 PIN HD MALE RGB (WIRED RGBs FOR SANYO)
    Suitable for use with Sanyo PLV-Z1 projectors, chassis numbers Z1xx onwards.
    The connections are as follows
    SCART pin 5 Blue Screen - VGA pin 8
    SCART pin 7 Blue signal - VGA pin 3
    SCART pin 9 Green Screen - VGA pin 7
    SCART pin 11 Green signal - VGA pin 2
    SCART pin 13 Red screen - VGA pin 6
    SCART pin 15 Red signal - VGA pin 1
    SCART pin 17 Composite Video screen - VGA pin 5
    SCART pin 19 Composite Video signal - VGA pin 13
    (thanks to Darren Fitchew for help on configuration)

    [SBB92S] £29.99 (£25.52 ex VAT)

    from keene electronics and a DVI widget:
    DVI ADAPTORS
    To adapt and connect an analogue 15 pin HDD interface to an analogue wired DVI connection (aka DVI-I). Useful if your display has both 15pin and DVI-I as it effectively gives you a second means of signal input without external switching or unplugging. Available as a cable or as an in-line adaptor;
    Adaptor DVI analogue male to 15pin HD female [45073] £19.99
    Adaptor DVI analogue female to 15pin HD male [45074] £19.99
    Cable DVI analogue male to 15pin HD male 1.8m [45075] £24.99

    [45073] £12.99 (£11.06 ex VAT)


    Also from keene.

    After downlooding the manual and checking out the pins of the DVI it lookds like the vga signal is reduced to 5 pins, RGB ground and HSynch.

    Will the above work still? Anywone know how the DVI adaptors are wired and if there is another scart converter I need

    I asked for some clear advice from Ivojo today, as there does seem to be some confusion surrounding the dvi socket. As of yet, I've had no reply.
    It would be much easier if someone could just confirm "buy this, and this,...oh, and this" and that they would work (and hopefully not rid me of an arm and a leg!) It would be much easier. Maybe Sanyo will pull their finger out and sell the scart/dvi etc adapters mentioned in the download manual pdf in time?
    As a side note, I called the sales desk at Ivojo today and asked if they had a firmer delivery date/idea? The lady said that they were expecting them mid November. So the wait's on!

    Cheers,

    Dean.
