I did actually think after posting it "Isn't this like telling someone they smell" :lol:

Trust me when I say that Ecover is now one to avoid! Bio D is what that used to be. Now it just goes for my nostrils.

p.s. Also noticed you are using the kibibyte unit.

I got one of these cheap scart to HDMI converter is expecting to be disappointed. And I was not disappointed, or should that be I was disappointed that I wasn't disappointed.. Anyway. its pretty crap. I did take a screenshot but is basically on par with RF quality. So not bothering to upload it.

I first had it connected to a H5 and I could only barely just make out the desktop. It was basically a blank screen. Connecting to my STE gave a video output.

Long story short, this is not a proper RGB scart converter. It is basically using composite video as the input not RGB :roll:

Realistically the thing could have been made half the size as well.

Conclusion - Bin.
