Hi People

Just bought the above cheapie from Richer Sounds. Plugged in did multi region hack, no probs. Sat down to check out an RCE disc. No probs.

In screen setup, video output there is a choice between:

Normal (composite I presume) which looked a little funny OR
YUV (which I presume is RGB)

When YUV is selected the picture is Black and White. This applies to both PAL and NTSC discs, I did try just in case.

DVD player is connected via scart to RGB input on TV. My old Samsung 709 was set to output RGB, SVideo and Composite and this worked fine (in colour) it's just it started skipping and stuff so I chopped it in at Richer.

The manual also says it doesn't support VCD, yet I've found people on usenet suggesting it does. Will have to try and find a few and see. Very odd if it doesn't as it will play MP3 and CDR and CD-RW.

Any help gratefully accepted.

PS when I borrowed a Cyberhome the composite also looked horrid, but when set to RGB through same scart the picture was fine.

Hi Guys

Thanks for trying.

1) Yeah exactly the same scart lead (also worked with borrowed Cyberhome)

2) Not sure what you mean. There is only one scart on 451 DVD player. Connected this to AV1 (which supports RGB) on TV. Have since been told by a mate that YUV is in fact S-video and not RGB. Now I'm confused as it has a separate S-Video socket.

Also, anyone know how to play VCDs on 451?

Cheers

thought YUV was component output? if it is you don't appear to have RGB and will have to use S-video.

i dont see why you are dissapointed, thats what it's suppost to do, as it's a stereo track ;)

you may however be able to use your amp to play in 5.1 :thumbsup:
