    I'm tearing my hair out here folks - any help would be appreciated.

    I'm borrowing a friends gamecube and can't get it to work with my Panny PWD7. I'm trying to hook it up in the same way as my PS2 i.e. running SCART from the GC into my RGB-VGA converter and onwards into the panel. Fairly standard stuff I would have thought.

    Problem - works fine with the PS2 but with the GC no picture, although the No Signal message disappears when I plug in.

    Any thoughts?

    Sounds odd as I use the JS Tech RGB-VGA with my 5 series panny and gamecube without any problem.

    Is it an official Nintendo SCART cable that is being used, as if not and its third party then theres a good chance that its not RGB.

    I can't see myself how this isn't working.
    Have you tried a different route? For instance, I have previously conected a GC via the front composite input on my DVDR [which is in turn connected to the PW7 via component] and it works well. Maybe worth a go to help identify where the problem lies.

    Yes bossc@ you were dead right.

    Researched the lead I had been given on the internet and found it was not an RGB scart - just standard AV. Ordered the official Nintendo one - a bit of a rip off if you ask me though - 20 quid for bog standard scart lead.

    Theres always been a lot of third party cables claiming to be RGB but simply weren't. I picked up a few Nintendo RGB scarts from Dixons when they were discontinuing Gamecube gear for the grand sum of £1.97 each :D
