I am about to take delivery of a Panasonic PW6 with a Composite/S-Video/Component video board. Is there any additional card etc i should be looking to purchase, or is this the best you can have/ all you need?

if its dvd recorder you can probably run sky via dvd to screen but JS converter is apparently best result (have ordered mine!)

Totally agree, the Scart board, for me, gave a poor picture for Sky+, switched over to the JS RGB-VGA box and it was a magnificant improvement.

The XBOX looped through the SKY box to VGA gives a very good picture but if you have a modded one, switch it to NTSC and turn on the HD resolutions in the MS Dashboard and plug a Microsoft HD component cable into your screen and you will be amazed.

An alternative to a component switching box is using your amp if you have one and its got the relevent inputs.


Is there some sort of dual VGA switch box? I have a scart board for Sky+ and would like to upgrade to a JS Box, but I use the VGA port for my computer.
