    I have the Samsung ntl box and have connected it to my HTPC's Haupage PVR150 TV card via a scart to S-video adapter. however, I am only getting black and white pictures on my PC. Any ideas?

    Sounds like the Samsung only outputs composite & RGB.

    If it outputs RGB you can convert the siganl to s-video. I used a JS Tech converter from my sky digi box would guess its the same deal.

    Yep, it's a fair bet that if a piece of equipment has no four pin s video socket you won't be seeing s video via scart either - shame really as RGB-S-video conversion isn't that hard in principle (nor expensive at OEM stage) and most only have one RGB enabled scart - thus leaving the s video pins free on scart 2. (scart is a bit of a flawed universal standard in that there is one universal standard which has to be changed in order to use RGB scart!!!)
