Is there someway I can convert composite video to component? If there is another forum I should post in please let me know. Thank you.

Will work for any tv. You can connect your composite source to the Matrix then on to the tv, or run it into an a/v receiver which I did, then on to your tv from the receiver. The device is simply a transcoder that takes the composite source, and converts it to either S-video or component video.

Call the number on the site and speak to Rob. He is the owner of the company and makes the Matrix V3. he is quite helpful.

What if you ran your Matrix v3 to a scaler and up converter then to your television? Would that work? I mean it converts the signal to 480i and the scaler/upconverter takes it to 480p, 720p or 1080i.


Thanks

Any scaler worth its salt will have a relatively decent comb filter in it, which is a better option as you avoid an additional A/D, D/A path.

yubyub is right. In the scenario you state above, you would not need the V3. A scaler/processor is capable of taking any signal input and outputting it scaled via any one of its available outputs. Therefore, a scaler does the same as the V3, plus it adds scaling and processing.
