    As the subject suggests, i'm trying to rig up my new JVC 28FR1 to my Sony DAV-S500 via the medium of S-Video.

    I've tried plugging a lead straight into the front S-Video socket on the TV and also through a SCART adapter.

    Unfortunately, both ways produce a black and white picture. :confused:

    What am i doing wrong? And what can you recommend to try?

    Cheers
    Dave

    I had the same problem with my DAVS800. You need to plug the SCART cable into a different AV port on the TV. Try AV2. There is a techincal reason as to why you cannot use AV1, I think this is detailed somewhere on this forum, but I cant remember!

    Scartman,

    I've got a DAV-S500 with JVC telly and had exactly the same problem.

    The solution (from a reply on this board) is to plug the scart into EXT 2 (or 3). Then you must go to the EXT settings on the TV setup menu and change that EXT to an S-Video input. Done by pressing the yellow fastext button or something (you'll find it easily enough). Without changing that, you'll just get a B/W picture.

    RDB :)

    I'll have a look at the exact way of doing it tonight, just in case I haven't explained it well enough just now.
