Hi got my SKy decoder 'upgraded' from the DSR600 series to DSR2000 so that I can have COMPONENT video on my LCD tv. SLight problem - in the excitment, I didn't realise that the DSR2000 doesn't have the additional composite video outputs (it only has AUDIO out) but nothing for video. The DSR600 has the 2 scarts (liek the DSR2000 for Video and VCR) but in addition also has additional composite plugs. The DSR2000 has SVideo out and 2 RF-Outs. I have a GigaAir 2020 so that I can watch Sky in the bedroom but all it has is composite plugs (3 RCA plugs). Is there anyway to get  the GigaAir to work with this Sky Decoder??
Please help :(

If you are handy with a soldering iron you could make your own SCART cable to get both Component and Composite out of the TV SCART at the same time.

What are you using the VCR SCART for, you could get the composite video out of that if its not used for anything else.

Got it sorted. I basically connected the Sky RF Out to the Video and the external normal aerial to the aerial thing on the decoder. Then used the SCART VCR composite cable to the GigaAir Reciever. Now the only thing i can't get to work is the remote extender. !!!!!
