I'm in need of help, i've installed a hauppauge 150 tv card and got wintv2000 working but it will not pick up any channels.

I'm trying to connect in to sky(not sky plus) and have a lead going from my sky tv scart socket to the card with red white and yellow connected at the tv card end.

Any help much appreciated.

It's not going to pick up any channels from sky. The card will tune in terrestrial channels if you plug in an aerial or will display/ record composite video output from sky (i.e. whatever channel is selected on the sky box). Won't pick up the sky channels to select in wintv2000 though.

Scart to phono leads are directional. Are you sure yours is scart to phono? Maybe it's phono to scart!

Yes, so it goes the wrong way!

Yes.

Which is the wrong way around.

You need Scart to Phono.

I bought a cable that has a switch within the scart plug so it works either way. If you can't get one of those just make sure it's scart TO phono. Tell them it's from your sky box to an old video recorder with no scart!

found one of those little switches in my box of bits, problem sorted.
One last thing this switch thing has an s video output as well, would that give me a better picture ?
