50 Inch Plasma - Only Black and White Picture!




I have inherited a Pioneer PDP 503MXE. The TV doesn't have a scart socket at all but has other stuff like s-video etc.

I plugged my laptop in through DVI socket and that worked with a perfect picture.

I need help regarding my sky+ though. The sky+ has 2 scart sockets, S-video and thats it. I purchased a scart to s-video with the phono leads but that produces an awful picture in black and white.

Could anyone help me with regard to the right cables/ setup please.

Any help is much appreciated.

Kind Regards

Sky doesn't send s-video via scart. You need to use an s-video lead from the s-video socket on the sky box to the s-video socket on the Pioneer (assuming it has PDA-5003 or 5004 card installed).

The DVI is without HDCP on that plasma. This means that HDMI-DVi leads will NOT work.
