Well, I could have given you a QL-VGA for less ;)

Their page doesn't really tell much, not even what the output format is. Weird.

I guess if I can't find the exact model mentioned above, any recommendations of what I need to confirm my Sony ...

Re: Sony CVM, BVM, or PVM with QL ?

I'm a bit lost exactly where you want to plug the SCART plug in when you no longer use the upscaler? If you want to use store -bought cables: you plug the scart cable into the female scart of the RGB Scart to 4xBNC adapter. This is my setup now , albeit I use a home built adapter .

Re: Productivity in the QL

Those of you who use your QL daily, are you productive with them?
