    Hi
    I am in the process of fitting a camos flat dish
    and i have a maplins box that only has a scart socket on the back to connect to the TV

    I also have a huppage thingy i use for TV on my laptop useing a normal ariel that has a standard ariel connector

    The question is
    Is it possable to connect a scart plug to a normal ariel connector so that i am then able to connect to the huppage thingy

    Hope that sounds right
    Happy daze
    Chrisboyo

    Tv Scart ...

    Er, depends on which adaptor you have. the scart output can give you stereo sound (white/red phono) and video out (yellow) via an adaptor. If you have these on your Haupage or notebook you are ok, if not things get complicated,

    Regards Richard

    Thanks Richard

    I just knew it wasnt going to be easy !

    There are pink, yellow and i think green connection points on the maplins box
    but not on the hupage
    Although there are p,y,g, connection points on the lappy
    This has only a usb male to laptop and a co ax female connector the other end

    As you can see, I am a computer failiure

    You are close with the haupgauge but not quite there.

    You can get a USB audio/video input dongle. It will have phone connectors so you need a SCART to Phono lead.

    This type of thing which may be available cheaper:

    I feel the urge to buy one but can't think of a need for it -- damn.

    Men understand this, women just can't get their heads round the concept. They say ridiculous things like "what do you want that for ?". What kind of a question is that, I ask you.
