    I am thinking of buying the Toshiba MT200 and was wondering about how to connect a sky box to it. Can I connect the Sky Scart in RGB mode to the RGB DSub input on the Toshiba or do I need a scart to component cable to connect to the component inputs on the Tosh.
    Is there a maximum length for this type of connection and will the picture deteriorate the longer the cable.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    I have 15m component and DVI with no deterioration I can detect.

    Unsure what a DSub is, a Scart to Component is a pretty standard connector - it does the presume the tosh can be adjusted to take RGB into the component as well as the "true" component though...PJ

    thanks for your help.

    I was looking for Scart RGB to either VGA or Component.

    A Syncblaster cable or box from Keene is another option (a bit cheaper too).

    But heed the warnings on the site posted by Zippycat - for these products to work with a Sky box, the PJ's VGA port must accept an interlaced input with HV sync signals of 15.625kHz for Hsync, and 50Hz for Vsync (at the same time) - if it won't then this idea is a non-starter!

    There are always alternatives, but these tend to walk hand in hand with progressively higher prices - it's up to each to then decide whether the price is worth paying, considering the typical quality of the Sky source signal.

    The MT200 can accept signals in the range:

    H 15 - 93kHz
    V 50 – 85Hz

    Hence the QED Q–Sync in the above link will work.

    Thanks for the replies. Is the best picture through the VGA or through the component with progressive scan.
