    have you done that on dvd and the screen? (do you mean component to vga?) it may be you need to connect your dvd via scart to somethingto get into teh menu and change its output to component

    The dvd player gives me the option of changing it from progresive / RGB / Y C

    The telly gives me the option of RGB or companent.

    Which two should I use? I am sure I have tried them all but I could be wrong.

    Thanks

    All sorted now and it looks Awesome! :D Very happy with it!

    I didnt press enter on the DVD player while scolling through the options, that was the problem.

    Thanks for your help :)
