1. DC power jack: 5V 2A DC power input.
2. SCART 1: Use a scart cable to connect the scart output of your source
equipment to this scart input.
The DC voltage on scart pin-16(fast blanking) from the source equipment will
decide whether output from source device is RGB Sync or composite.
In case if pin-16 is floating or pull high, the CM-394 will set to RGBS mode.
Otherwise it will be set to composite mode. The detection of pin-16
voltage from the source and therefore the signal format is carried out
automaticaly on CM-393.
3. SCART 2: Use a scart cable to connect the scart output of your 2nd scart
source to this scart input of the CM-393.

Note: 1. All PC output resolution has 60 Hz vertical rate.
2. Vertical rate of 480p and 576p output is 60 Hz and 50 Hz respectively.
3. The vertical rate of 720p and pseudo 1080i(540p) can be 50 or 60 Hz
depending on the vertical rate of their respective video input.
4. - The output signal format for the 5 PC resolutions (VGA~SVGA) is HDMI RGBHV.
- The output signal format for the 4 HD resolution (*480p~pseudo1080i) is
HDMI YPbPr.
5. Since CM-393's pseudo 1080i output is actually a 540P resolution
(960x540p) it may not be accepted by many HDMI TVs due to its pixel
clock is only half the real 1080i.
