Hi Keith,

Thanks, I could not see a sync port on either my screen or dvd play (both
panasonic) so I would think that a unit with 3 channels for Y-Cr-Cb (what
the difference between this and RGB?) and a single audio channel for the
centre line output will be great.

Are these a stock item or do you have to make them specially?

How do I sort out payment?
