Hello all.


I'm wondering a few things about interface types for TVs and STBs...


1.) Is a RGB 15-pin D-sub the same as the VGA input / output?


2.) What is the difference in a RGBHV BNC and a Component BNC? Wouldn't the BNC be the same thing I would think.


Thanks for the clarificiation.

First, BNC is simply a type of connector typically used with higher-end (industrial and pro) video equipment. It may be used for either RGB or component video interfaces (or composite video for that matter). The 15 pin connectors generally is used for VGA and a breakout cable with a 15 pin connector on one end and 5 separate BNC connectors on the other are available from a number of suppliers. In this case the 5 BNCs are for Red, Blue, Green, Vertical Sync and Horz. Sync. What is normally referred to a component video is different than RGB/VGA and the two cannot be directly interfaced without an active box to convert from one to the other. I have some additional information on video interfaces on the DTV page of my web site at: www.dtvmax.com
