Hi guys my 1st post.

Well i have got a Samsung 2100C set top box and a Infocus IN76 projector.

I want to be able to watch ntl on my projector but cant.

The projector has component input (RGB) and the yellow composite and svideo input, HDMI, M1-DA/DVI.

I bought a scart to component output and connected that to the ntl box and the rest of the component wires to the projector but i got no signal at all. i then changed the settings in the ntl to output in component or was it RGB, but still got nothing. id appriciate any help guys.

there arent many output options on the 2100C have you considered an upgrade to the new ntl box?
Im sure someone on here can give you a full list of outputs but it definately has HDMI.

Just to get a picture, you could buy a scart to composite cable and plug it into yellow input, and change NTL to output composite, but that will give pretty poor output quality.

Personally for me and my NTL to projector (Infocus 5700), I use a JSTech RGB to component convertor, so NTL scart to scart to JSTech box, and component to component cable to projector.

Check out the for sale forum where you should find them going at good prices :smashin:

I've got a Panasonic DMR-EX75 DVD/HDD recorder which upscales over HDMI. I have connected my NTL box (RGB SCART) to this, which then upscales the cable picture to my Sony projector. Just one word of caution; a large screen does amplify poor quality channels, so don't expect miracles (a high bitrate channel does look very good though)

Unfortunately the adaptor that you bought relies upon a component signal being output by the SCART socket on your cable box. This is not the case, which is why you need to convert the RGB output using the JS Technology converter. Hope that clears things up.
