Hi Everyone - hopefully someone can help me here. I have MySky but have just added a multi-room decoder that I was hoping to run through my new BENQ L2200HD computer monitor because it has the facility for a couple of different feeds that you can switch between. Thats when I discovered that the Sky decoder (DSR2000-NZL) only came with a SCART to RCA output and my monitor input is plug with 19 pins - 2 blocks of nine (3x3) and a longer pin at the end - I assume this is a standard hdmi plug? Anyway - anyone know how I can make this work??

Go SCART to component (YUV + L/R audio) and put the component through a black box to convert to VGA (15 pin DSUB on monitor).




Spark FibreMAX using Mikrotik CCR1009-8G-1S-1S+. Apple TV 4, Apple TV 4K, iPad Air 1, iPhone 6s, VodaTV Gen 2. If it doesn't move then its data cabled.

Thanks for your suggestion Ross but I really didn't want to use the DSUB because I will have to unplug the PC and plug in SKY whenever I want to switch between the two. Is that my only solution? Thanks for your help.

OK - I decided to use a separate monitor for this - a computer monitor and I understand I can get a SCART to component cable form SKY. As for the black box - has anyone got a DSE product number or somewhere I can get this? Sorry for being so brainless about this stuff. Thanks for your help. TONY
