    Why do companies still insist on making the scart pass throughs non RGB compatible.

    I have just got a 37" PW7 and a Toshiba DR3 DVDR and I only got one scart input to my PW7 so that I would just loop the scarts through from my SKY+. AAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRGGGGGHHHHH Its composite only, I get an amazing new telly and the pictures crap.

    If I pull the cables out and put them in seperate the RGB picture is superb.

    Why o Why?

    Is my only solution to get another Scart board and have them plugged in seperately and have a SVHS cabel between the 2 for recording?

    Any ideas?

    Thanks
    What an amazing screen :)

    When considering SCART-VGA conversion, bear in mind that there appears to be no aspect ratio control via the VGA connection, but there is with SCART via a terminal board. This may or may not be an issue for you depending on both your signal sources and the degree to which you or your family are prepared to 'fiddle' to watch the news without fat-headed newscasters! For the sake of peace in the family I'm probably going the SCART route. There is a fudge box that reads the SCART aspect signal and drives the serial port on the screen, so this will solve the problem, but at a price.

    Auto aspect control is really not needed, i don't see any need for that as i run the plasma n either FULL or JUST mode always.

    Does the Sky+ not pass through RGB? If it doesn't your looking at two inputs into the PW7, I guess.
