    Hi guys,

    I'd appreciate some help with a problem I'm having connecting my Panasonic TH-42PE50B Plasma TV and my Panasonic SA-HT1500 Home Theatre System. The problem is when I connect the 2 devices using a Monster Video2 cable no picture is displayed on the Component AV choice on my TV. I went through the manual and am certain I set the Theatre sysem to output progressive scan correctly. The only problem I can see is that on the back of both my TV and Theatre system in says Y Pb Pr but on the cable connections it says Y Cb Cr have I bought the incorrect cable?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance

    I can help with one aspect.
    You can ignore the labelling - you've got the correct cable.

    Strictly speaking, YCbCr refers to digital component (colour difference) video, YPbPr to analogue component (colour difference) video, but a lot of manufacturers treat the labels as interchangeable.

    I'm sure someone who knows more about your equipment will offer some specific suggestion about the problem.

    You say you have set to output progressive scan, have you also set to output component? Most DVD players in this country are set to output RGB over scart by default. You may need to connect to another TV with a scart input, using a scart cable to make the changes.
