    I have a 9m S-video lead to my projector but have a cross pattern displayed. the lead cost me over £50 from a reputable company & is alleged to be of broadcast quality, I have tried a very cheap lead (under a tenner) which shows no cross pattern. Having looked at the lead it only shows one earth lead where as the leads I have seen have two earths, I rang the suppliers & explained the issue with the earths & they told me that there S leads only have one earth & asked me to send it back to check but the lead is in the wall & difficult to get out,
    Are they correct about the earths & if so any ideas what it could be,
    I have tried DVD, Sky & my x-box all with the same result

    Cheers
