    My next door neighbours have just got a new tv, video, dvd player, and hi-fi to add to their sky digibox and asked yours truly to connect it up for them.

    I have connected them this way

    dvd player scart to sky scart

    sky scart to tv scart rgb

    hi-fi phono to dvd phono

    Now when i have the scart going from dvd through sky the picture when viewing dvd flesh tones are light blue but fine when going directly from dvd to tv.

    To get sound through their hi-fi i need to connect it via sky digibox.

    So can anyone tell me how to get rid of the blue flesh tones??

    Can you try S-Vid to see if that brings an improvement ?
    Is the symptoms present with sky ? Has RGB been enabled for sky ?

    Is there a problem with the DVD directly connected to the tv?

    My Grundig Digibox has the Blue and RED RGB passthrough crossed over, so problems like yours do occur. Yours would appear to be to much gain on the blue buffer/amp, which should have no gain. This is a fault and you should get your digibox fixed, or swapped to one without this fault. Alternativley you could try soldering a resistor in the DVD scart lead to reduce the blue. I doubt you will end up with a lineir result though.

    As JER101 says it looks like a sky box passthrough problem, but could you tell us the make and model of tv and dvd as if theres any problem with getting the box replaced or repaired there could be alternatives depending on the models, i'm thinking along the lines of rgb passthrough on the dvd if it has 2 scarts and using the tv as the audio switcher.
