Hi Been reading through the messages in the forums and doing some research on & off. Took the jump last week and sold my Toshiba 3787DB http://www.t3.co.uk/rev_print.asp?rev_id=12 which was getting too heavy to move around. Have bought a NEC MT1050 projector for home theatre / home office use and am asking for advice on setting it up. The equipment I wish to use includes 1>NEC MT1050 LCD projector (s-video / video / 2 RGB) 2>Thomson VPH6990 VCR (video out / 2 scarts) 3>Panasonic NV-HD660 VCR (2 scarts) 4>JVS HR-DVS3EK miniDV VCR (S-video out / scart) 5>Cyberhome ADL528 DVD player (cheapo but has scart/ component/ video / svideo outs) 6>Sky Digibox (yet to arrive) 7>Sony GR-114 laptop (RGB output or can use video out) 8>Desktop with Matrox G400 & RT2000 (RGB output / s-video / video for both playback and capture) Ok, so is this too complicated ? One of the VCR's can go if needed, probably the HD-660. The plan is to chain all these together so that I can 1>record from SKY to VCR / desktop 2>record from DVD to VCR / desktop 3>record from VCR to VCR / desktop 3>record from desktop/ laptop to VCR 4>watch directly from any of the inputs What is the kit I need to do this? Have looked at HTPC based setups, not an option at this time due to mobility / stability constraints ( the RT 2000 is unstable enough as it is but need it for DV editing), a hardware application has to make do for now. So am I right in thinking a scan doubler and a switcher are necessary ? Any suggestions? Advice welcome.
