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+. UAP, UAP AC Pro, UAP AC Pro Mesh, Apple TV 4, Apple TV 4K, iPad Air 1, iPhone XR, VodaTV Gen 2. If it doesn't move then it's 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
