    I have a Pany PW5 at home and use a JS Tech box for the sky with my DVD Denon 2900 going through component. I use the
    video board in the plasma rather than the tuner. Everything works great.

    I am in Spain(Morraira) and visiting a friend who has bought a Pany5 plasma. His system works OK except that his sky is in black and white.

    He is using a scart to s-video converter to run a s-video cable to the plasma from the sky box. I can not get it to display in colour.
    When i run the s-video cable without the converter from DVD player to plasma it is fine.

    I am proposing sending him a JS box (scart-pc)so he can use the PC input
    on the plasma but am not sure this will work.

    Any ideas/advice would be of great help.

    the only thing i can think is that you have not selected s-video on the sky box scart output

    Most Sky boxes do not output an S-Video signal (with a few noteable exceptions like Grundig's offering). Result if you try = a black and white picture as your friend has discovered :)

    There are two options - the first is to obtain an S-Video compatible digibox and leave the connections as is. The second (and probably easier) is to use a lead like the JS RGB-VGA one and connect via a different input :)
