Perhaps my EM15A backlight is defective - it's certainly somewhat annoying, and to that extent I prefer to use the BL912. I'm interested to see that your EM15A backlight seems much less intrusive.
Regarding SCART to HDMI converters - the cheap Chinese units seem to me to be a lottery - there's no guarantee that any particular unit will work well a QL, at least so far as I can see. I'm pretty sure that my Chinese unit will look identical to yours on the outside, yet mine has been of no use to me at all with my QLs, though it works really well with a BBC Micro. The advantage of the Hoglet project perhaps isn't cost - rather, it's an open source project, that isn't going to suddenly vanish or change spec, or otherwise become suddenly unavailable. The amount of work needed to get it working with the QL is, I think, most unlikely to be large, given the amount of work already done for other relatively similar systems.
Is the QL RGB to SCART cable the same as the one used for the Spectrum 128 +3 models? If so... I may be able to test mine this way once I get my QL.
I have one of the chinese VCANDO SCART to HDMI and works great for connecting my +3 to the nice 32" HDMI monitor I have.
Or is the RGB out on QL different?
