    I have a Pioneer 433MXE1 plasma which I am feeding via my Onkyo 702 amp through an Iscan Pro. Now, the compoents I have connected are as follows:
    DVD player - component to amp
    Sky + - s video to amp
    Gamecube - composite to amp

    Everything is then "upconverted" by the Onkyo amp and fed to the Iscan pro. However, when i connect a Tivo to the amp, I get no picture. I am using the TV scart on the Tivo connected via a scart to composite lead. The Tivo scart out is set to Pal (though it actually makes no difference if i set it to RGB & Pal or Pal - still no picture). I get no picture whether I connect the Tivo direct to the plasma, to the amp (upconverted and out to the the Iscan) or direct to the iscan.

    The Tivo is outputting a picture via RF and the scart connection works as I have had them connected to a 14" portable...

    The Tivo subsciption isn't activated yet...so the Tivo technical helpline won't help me...they say if i activate the sibscription they'll offer me technical assistance but can't guarantee it'll work... :thumbsdow

    Anybody care to help me out here... :lease:

    Family guy can you "borrow" a JS RGB>YUV converter and give that a go?

    That would probably work but I don't think we have any in stock...I was kinda hoping to get it working without adding to the cost as well TBH.

    ...though thinking about it, I'm already using a component converter in the amp - so maybe it won't work...:confused:

    Brian, pop round and pick one up. Your amp doesn't like the composite vid, or the lead/adapter is bust.
