    Please somebody help. I bought a plasma and i have the dvd working perfectly and the picture is amazing. But no picture from my sky digital. The only connection availiable to me is an Svideo on the plasma and i orgianally tried to use a cable that has a scart lead connector on one end and an svideo connector on the other but alas no joy at all. So went to maplin and bought an RGB to S-Video converter (picture attached) but no instead of no signal coming up on the plasma i dont get that message but there is still no picture at all. Please help me people. I have a orginal Sky digital pace box that only has the two scart outputs. Is there any digiboxes that have an svideo out put. By the way the plasma is a panasonic TH-42PW5

    thanks

    Is the output of the sky box set to RGB instead of PAL?

    And make sure you are plugged into the TV scart, VCR scart is always composite. Come across that one every day...

    All sorted it was conected to the tv output so that was not the problem. The digibox was set to pal all i needed was to set it to RGB and all sorted.
