    I've just installed my sparkling new ADR-5800Di - but for some reason it won't lock onto my Sky+ Box. I'm feeding the single via scart directly to AV1 on the DVD recorder, but the picture slips from colour to black and white.

    The manual offers advice on tuning via RF - but says nothing about direct scart links.

    Any ideas out there?

    Thanks

    I have no info whatsoever on this Akai model, but usually these symptoms are down to not using a fully wired scart lead.
    If the Akai has 2 scarts try using AV2 for the Sky input and there may well be a setting in the Akai menu to select composite or RGB input......use RGB if available and set the Sky to output RGB.

    Thanks for that. The machine has since displayed incompatibility problems with some of my DVD-Rs. It must have been a rogue machine. I have now returned it to the seller.
