    The PT AE100 doesnt have a scart socket so I am surprised you get any picture at all.
    Check freeview box is set to RGB, Svideo and PAL output.

    Thanks for your advice. Sorry i didn't mention i use a scart-svideo converter to link the Freeview box to the projector.. It works on my skydigit box! i can't find how to set the Freeview box to rgb,Svideo output, maybe it is a cheap model (Daewood). If freeview can work on the PTAE100, can u recommed any brand model for me. Thanks again.

    I may well do the same thing. Probably I will go for the Hauppauge Dec 2000, which as well as being a standalone freeview box, connects to a PC via a USB port. You can record the digital stream directly and display it on the pc, either recorded or live. I am told it gives an excellent picture on both PC and TV. Using the PC's scaling and de-interlacing will give you the best quality picture on the projector. If you have a PC you can connect to the projector, and since you already have a freeview box for your TV, you could get a PCI freeview card, also by Hauppauge. This would do the same thing.
