black and white freeview


Standard Member
can somebody please help me quickly, i have just tried to connect my freeview box up to my screenplay 4805 via scart to s-video lead (s-video into 4805) and all the channels are in black and white! please help!!

p.s those of you who have freeview on your projector please could you tell me how it is connected and what box it is. thanks

You may need to tell the freeview box to output S-Video from the scart rather than RGB - this should be in the STB setup menu....

it seems i have made a blunder and bought one that doesnt output via the scart, anybody know any that do?

Just have alook at the boxes in the shop and check what has s-video out.
Alternatively, you could use your VCR / DVD recorder that has S-video out and loop the connection through that????...You may need to make sure the VCR / DVD recorder is switched on and selected on the right AV channel.
This is how I connect up my Xbox for ease of use, and it saved my £15 on the cable.
