    Question as above.

    I will be connecting my AE700 to my Quintro+, i will be watching SKY+, DVD player (panasonic RV-60) and probably PS2 on the projector. (all connected to Quintro via Scart)

    So first of all does the Quintro carry the RGB signal through.. ie. from Sky+ to Quintro to AE700?

    And will i need an RGB only scart from Sky+ to Quintro to get the best out of it?

    is the difference in quality (i assume RGB only is much better) worth it?

    Is this possible at all, or will certain signals (from PS2??) not be carried via RGB?

    OK, and finally where do i get a good quality 10m Scart lead from?? (RGB only or otherwise depending on answers from above!)

    Cheers Rob

    Having looked at the spec for the Quintro it seems to pass through whatever type of signal is presented to it so the RGB will pass through.

    As you haven't mentioned having any sound system I shall remind you that an RGB scart carries picture signals only so you will need to make alternative arrangements for the sound if you use one of this type.

    input 1 of the Quintro is composite only.
