    Hi folks sorry to keep bugging you all but i have another one for you.

    When i run a s-video to s-video lead from my dvd player to my sanyo projector there are no probs.

    but when i run a scart to s-video there is no picture? can scart not convert to s-video? I thought it could?

    Maybe you can help, i hope so.
    Cheers,John.

    Hi John,

    Some SCART outputs are not Svideo-enabled, or you may have the option of enabling it through the menus in your dvd player.

    Also, many SCART to S-Video leads are one way or switchable. Could be the lead is wired S-Video >> SCART . i.e. trying to send a signal from the pj to the player.

    I think it is one way Messiah, I am using my telly now for ease of use. If i go scart from dvd to my to s-vid into my TV then i get nothing.

    However if i reverse the cable and go s-vid from my dvd player to scart into my tv then i get a picture however it is in black and white. MMMM.

    Any suggestions folks?
    Cheers,John.
