Is it possible to connect a US component video source

(e.g. dvd player or A/V receiver) to a European TV

through scart, WITHOUT downcoverting to S-video?

Thanks

Cskates, thanks for the information.


Is it worthwhile to use one of the converters from

Y/RY/BY to RGB, or should I just connect through the

S-video ports?

Has anyone used any of the Y/RY/BY to RGB converters?


I looked at a few A/V receiver sold in Europe, and apparently

none of those I've seen has a composite RGB output.


Thanks

oops, I meant component RGB, i.e. RGBS or RGBHV,

something that can be fed into a scart as RGB signal

You may also need NTSC to PAL conversion. Both NTSC and PAL can exist as composite video, S-video, Y/Pb/Pr component video, and RGB.


The best results are had by de-interlacing (making the original material progressive scan) first, then converting to the other scan rate, then re-interlacing if necessary. If the material started off as composite, it should be comb filtered and made into S-video, and then made into component video or RGB prior to de-interlacing.


I do not know what NTSC-PAL converters do things what way. If de-interlacing is not done first, often the result is a much softer picture due to mixing the corresponding even and odd scan lines from adjacent fields.
