    Help please!!! I just bought myself an RGB (video only) scart lead QED 4110. I have connected it to Sky+ box, set the tv on rgb but all I get is a black screen!!!! Also, where with a fully wired scart and all the rest set to rgb, I get the AV1/RGB display when I select the relevant input, I get just a simple AV1 display on the (dark) screen. Am I doing something wrong???? Help please.
    Thanks

    other thing to be aware of is that scart leads are often directional.....have you tried connecting it the other way around?

    Got to agree with mep on this one, Try another scart lead (even if it is cheap and nasty one) to see if you get a picture. It could just be that the lead is faulty.
    also like has already been said.
    Make sure sky is set to RGB 16:9 wide mode and not P.A.L
    Make sure that if the RGB scart lead is just one way, that you have it round the right way, or it it has a switch on it that it is correctly switched to in and out :)

    To all, thanks. I have done everything right, so my conclusion is the cable may be faulty; just have to send it back and get a refund. As for another cable, well I have resorted to a standard scart 2 scart and everything works, so it can only be this particular cable I purchased? Thanks anyhow
    Ciao
