    I have taken some pics of the same screen comparing Compostie Svid and componant.

    Used avia test card with sony menu (projector still not callibrated

    Source is 735 Sony DVD


    for the scart RGB I had turn stop DVD and couldnt get test card in same pos, so image not quite same.

    All photos taken with same camera settings.

    Pics largeish whole site about half a meg

    Hope its useful to those thinking of getting Keene RGBs scart and wanting to see difference.

    Yep - good job!

    Pics of movie screenshots don't often give a true picture, but those examples undeniably work well at showing the differences - composite is obviously the worst.

    Would you say the same image comparisons are evident with movies? I wonder if the component/scart/vga inputs can be identified easily just by viwing a movie.

    Gary.

    nunew33, Thanks for the info. Rgb looks much sharper than Svideo, even looks better than component IMO. Ordered cables from Keene this morning, so fingers crossed!

    composite is worst in movies. Im not fussy either but there is a real step change from composite to any of the others. I dont think I could tell the difference between the other three in a movie, but Im not an expert and the proj is still at out of the box settings. Im sure with tweaking they may improve.

    Great work nunew!
    The difference betwen RGB and Component looks marginal. I'm using component for DVD's at the moment plus S Video for the Sky Box. What's you experience of Sky thro' RGB? I've seen other anoraks suggest that the slightly softened s video is actually preferable for Sky! And fiinally, what cable are yoiu using for RGB to DVI?

    Phil. I have a panny digibox so svideo is not an option.

    Also the digibox RGB doesnt work. I am swapping for a grundig next week. So my experience is...non existant. It simply doesnt work.

    My cable is a DVI to VGA at the projector end. A 10mVGA run to the source. An RGBs VGA to scart from keene. I have tested the VGA with a laptop and tested the scart with the dvd. The telly struggles to lock onto te rgb from the digibix so Im pretty certain the cabling is fine and the digibox is crud.

    Update: Swapoped Panny for grundig. RGBs fine now. Have added bnefit of Svideo should I need to add anything else.

    Also, done comparison shots for Sky with composite, Svid and Sky

    Pictures larger (1.7meg in total) so you can see RGBs and Svideo differences, not much in it. All photos at 2.8 1/8
