My av amp requires the same type of connection for all video in and out. I have chosed s video, because the freeview box doesn't have component connections. The tv only has scart connections so I have bought a s video to scart cable to join the amp to the tv. The problem is, the picture quality is almost black and white, it is so bad. The s video to scart connection seems to be the cause. If I connect either the dvd to the tv or the freeview box to the tv, directly, using the s video to scart cable the picture is similarly bad.(had I used a scart to scart, the picture is perfect) Thinking the cable was faulty I exchanged it for another new one, but the problem is still there. Is the second cable faulty as well, or have I missed something. Please help.
