    input type for rfla

    hello,

    excuse me if this is a really stupid question ...

    i plan to distribute video from a bv7-40 to a bc6-26 via rfla. the input connecter type on the bv7-40 is scart. the output from the hdmi downscaler can be component, s-video, or composite.

    is it worth fooling around with higher-quality composite, or is this loss somewhere between the scart conversion or distribution via rfla ?

    thanks for your help,

    Re: input type for rfla

    hello again,

    i am replying to my self. the initial post garnered no responses, so i wrote directly to keith in desparation. he was kind enough to answer and i am posting again to share his wisdom.

    if i have understood things, it can be stated simply as r-g-b > s-video > composite. however...

    * r-g-b is not the same as y-pb-pr. this may seem obvious, but many products use red, green, and blue rca connectors for a y-pb-pr signal. personally, i i am looking for a hdcp-compliant downscaler and found a y-pb-pr, but not a r-g-b.

    * s-video is not officially supported by the scart standard. make sure your receiving device can handle the signal. the bv7-40 can. keith provided me with the pin diagram. i can pass it along if useful

    i plan to use a downscaler with s-video + audio output to connect to the bv-7 scart with an appropriate cable. keith indicated that it would be better to use a converter from s-video to r-g-b, but for me this was one box too many.

    i hope this helps any one else with similar questions. and thanks again to keith !
