    This is a really simple question and asking it probably makes me sound really dim but ...

    I've got my DV88 connected to my JVC 32" widescreen with a fully wired SCART.

    I'm pretty sure that this is running with RGB and not just composite ... but is there anyway to tell for sure??


    Thanks
    Victoria

    I believe you can't adjust the colour in RGB mode on some JVC tv's, so that could be your best bet, or you could try:

    1. connect the dvd to scart 1 on the tv

    2. check that the dvd player is set to output RGB

    3. use your AV button on the tv remote to cycle through the AV channels to see if there is more than one channel playing. RGB will look (usually) a lot cleaner than composite.

    hope this helps

    Pull the SCART plug out unevenly, i.e. leaving some of the pins still connected. As RGB signals are fed down three different pins, you will get a tinted picture at some point if it's RGB, as you will lose one colour feed. A strange way to do it but it works.
