    Hi - I am just about to have Sky+ installed, and am looking to find out how to get the best picture possible.

    I currently have a standard sky box plugged into my AX10i which then feeds the H50 via component. I have had to use a standard composite yellow video plug - as the AX10i seems incapable of converting the signal via either S-Video or Component.

    I know that JSTech produce an RGB scart to component converter, but it is very expensive and I was hoping to do this cheaply.

    Does anyone know any way?

    Thanks! :smashin:

    With the Sky+ box you can take s-vid out and into the AX10 which will upconvert to component.
    Make sure the input on the AX10 hasn't been assigned for component otherwise it won't upcovert the signal.

    Am I missing something - you have an VSA-AX10i plus an H50 and an £150 JS Tech RGB2YUV is deemed expensive!!!

    Why cut corners at this stage in your system building?

    If your using the S-Video out from your SKY+ I'd try it direct to the projector and see how that compares with the up conversion via the AX10i; or do it properly and go RGB2YUV.

    Best regards
