    I bought my kit before xmas, but have only just been able to install the plasma in my new house.

    Everything works fine except I can't get a Sky picture on the Plasma.

    I have been supplied with everything needed and was told to setup like this:-

    Scart from Sky+ box to JS RGB to Component Converter, Then component goes into my Denon amp.

    From Denon amp goes Component to VGA input on Plasma.

    Can anyone tell me where am I going wrong?

    the JS converter is showing a red light.
    my DVD is working fine.

    Please please need quick help :confused: :confused:

    Hi
    What sort of plasma have you got ? Can you connect from JS direct to the screen.That would eliminate a problem with the JS box
    Also what sort of lead are you using to connect from amp to screen.
    Do you need to set the VGA input to recieve a conponent signal

    Atb
    JS

    Hi all thanks for your help I have got it fixed.

    The scart lead was in the wrong direction.

    The scart lead I have got is directional, which I didn't know.

    Unfortunatley I can't really answer that, becuase this is a whole new system, I can't compare it to the old.

    But I have read many good reviews about the JS Converter, saying it is the best etc. best people to ask are the people at AV-sales.co.uk phone them up and they will help you out.

    I can tell you my picture is great, no probs yet!
