    Hello Please helpI have just run a DVI cable from my Tag McLaren into the Screenplay 4805 using an adapter M1 (M) to DVI -D (F) and the picture is all shades of pink. I suspect that the shop has sold me the wrong adapter. I set the DVD player to accept a component output as it offers that os svideo and composite. Can anyone please advise as to were I have gone wrong

    It sounds like the 4805 is set/expectecing RGB-DVI and you're sending Component-DVI, which if I remember will give a very pink/red picture (IIRC), RGB-DVI out to Component-DVI in gives a green picture (again IIRC). Go in to the menu on the 4805 and change the setting on the M1 input colorspace to Component.

    Don't forget to change the output of the DVD32's PSM module to RGB-DVI (check the manual for exact keystrokes, but you key in 'r, g, b' at some point) rather than component colourspacing over DVI. I had exactly this problem when I first connected mine, and this sorted things perfectly.

    Yep it appears that all PSM's default to component colour space output from new..... I've not seen one power up in RGB mode yet but it is a simple button press or four to switch modes, as usual if all else fails :rtfm:

    Thanks as soon as I followed your advice Bingo it worked. I was feeding it a component signal as I thought this was the better option. I phoned IAG and they said it could be better explained in the handbook So thanks again
