    I have recently bought an MT3. I want to use the 9 pin RGB input connected to my SONY DVD component sockets (phono). Anyone know where I can get a lead (long 10Ms if possible)?

    You can use a compute monitor lead - vga breakout to phono, which you could get from the likes of pc world.

    Or you can order a decent cable from the likes of bettercables.com
    (the shipping charge is horrendous though).

    Alan,
    The computer input on most projectors is usually a 15 pin D type rather than 9 pin. The connectors are the same shape and size, and are easily confused. You'll find it much easier to order/buy a 15 pin D to scart rather than 9 pin D.

    I don't know the Toshiba MT3 that well, but 15 pin D is the standard monitor connector for the portable projector industry, I can't imagine Toshiba bucking the trend on this one.

    Regards

    Thanks ROne and Chris. You're probably right about the 15 pin D. My eyesight's failing and I am getting lazy in my old age. I should have checked before I posted. Thanks again.
