I have an issue …
For a client, that wants the Sony SDMP234 (RGB by VGA/ HD15 DSUB input only), and the sony DVPNS50B (component video out + misc crappy outputs) I need a realtime/hardware converter.
Unfortunately, this is a very pathetically understood issue, as every second person I’ve met has assured me that using a simple passive (aka cheap) cable, I can basically hook them up. This advice also comes via Sony Tech support also, which leads me to conclude that Sony Tech support is practically useless.
I have found formulas, circuit diagrams & kit’s for simple conversion, but am hesitant to build them for a client, as my personal soldering skills hover somewhere between incompetent & hack and I don’t know anyone with any better skills.
Is there a decent commercially available Component->RGB converter that can output to a 1920x1200@60Hz refresh anywhere which doesn’t cost a small fortune?
