    Have just bought a LCD TV with 2 scart sockets. Discovered when I got it home that 1 of them is YUV input not RGB.

    I can get a Y/Pb/Pr output from the DVD, but not YUV. I understand that the differences are fairly minimal but before I plug in and try it does anyone know if the signal levels are compatible ?

    They are the same....or rather the device that says YUV on it is using the wrong nomenclature.....YUV is a digital signal...YPrPb is the analogue equivalent.

    Not true.

    Correct, but out of context.

    Incorrect.



    YUV is refering to the 3 componant signals (Y B-Y R-Y) which make up Composite "PAL" video, where the colour difference information are Quadrature amplitude modulated at 4.43361875Mhz on to the Luminance signal, which is the cause for the "PAL" artifacts.

    All* domestic equipment which lables YUV, Y B-Y R-Y, Y PR PB, Y Pb Pr, are questionable lables, but will work together.

    Gareth.


    *Im sure there are units which disprove this, but this is the general rule.

    I'll let the big boys get on with the alphabet soup :)

    You say you can Output YPbPr from your DVD player and Input YUV to your LCD TV on SCART - which is fine as long as you realise your DVD player will most likely Not output YPbPr on its SCART socket.

    Your most likely to require a cable that is 3RCA to SCART and wired for Component video - the DVD player will more than likely offer you Composite or RGB via SCART and YPbPr via three RCA Phono sockets (usually coloured Red, Green and Blue).

    Best regards

    Thanks for your replies.

    I must say that Gordons answer did puzzle me a bit as I had already done some research on the net and it was implied that they were both analogue signals - I just wasnt sure whether the signal levels would be compatible..

    Anyway in the end I bit the bullet and tried it and lo and behold - it works.

    Cheers All,
