    hi there, I am a novice so please help/bear with me :lease:
    I have a philips 32pw9618, denon 3803, sky+, dvd & video player.
    all components are currently connected via s-video through my amp..
    In an attemp to improve picture quality from my sky+ I went out and brought an ixos 611 scart to get an rgb signal directly to my TV (rgb scart input)
    After connecting this and taking out the s-video connection to my amp the picture remained the same ? no improvement..

    Is there a reason for this or is it just that the difference in picture is so small that I just cannot see it ???

    Thanks for any help..

    Not all scart sockets on a TV are enabled for RGB and S-Video. I am not sure for your particular model but traditionally AV-1 is an RGB socket whilst maybe AV-2 or AV-3 are the s-video sockets so you need to ensure that the scart is in the correct socket for the signal that you are trying to send.

    Depending on your exact equipment, there's unlikely to be a big jump in quality between S-Video and RGB. :)

    Thanks.

    My TV Has 4 Scart Connections (2 RGB)
    I swapped it around anyway to check which was the best but as I said there was no apparent difference.. in fact the miss's reckoned it looked slightly worse...

    Cheers anyway guys, i'm off for a refund !

    One you have installed the SCART cable you then need to ensure the Digibox is set to Output RGB and the TV is set to Input RGB on the SCART socket your using.

    If you haven't set both units to RGB then your looking at Composite video not RGB.

    Best regards

    Joe
