    Hi folks

    Shame faced my AV connecting project is beating me!

    s video input;composite video input;stereo audio input.

    <Panasonic Sat Receiver>

    <Pioneer DV99>

    Optical digital input;audio left;audio right; s-video;video out;1 scart; audio TV in left and right....Line1 left and right...Line 2 left and right.

    I have used S video to Pioneer and TV and have sound no pictures...the whole thing a result of my ignorance I'm sure. i appreciate this is an enormous and boring question but some guidance would be greatly appreciated.


    Thanks

    S-video only carries pictures and not sound. On most televisions you have to enter the setup menu and tell it that the signal at the scart socket will be s-video as they normally default to RGB or composite.

    Similarly you may have to tell the Pioneer somewhere that you are outputting s-video

    wouldn't the RGB scart be a better option for better picture quality?
