    I've recently invested in a PLV-Z2 projector and Jamo all in one.
    Very impressed with both picture and sound with the DVD.
    This week though I've tried connecting a VCR upto the projector and although the picture qulaity is fine, I'm only getting a monochrome image.
    I've connected using a Scart to S-Video and RCA. Can anyone tell me why I'm not getting a colour image?

    Cheers

    VCR wont output S-video unless it is an S-VHS VCR
    use composite video (usually yellow RCA cable)

    Thanks for your help but now I have another question. Can I play my existing pre-recorded videos on a SVHS player connected to the projector?

    Yes i think you can but not sure if you will get S-VHS output (i should know really) If looking for an S--VHS Deck Panasonic NV121 and JVC are good and can be had for a little over £100 mark. beter to use composite for VHS and buy a DVD-R with S-video for future duties though!

    i have a 2 year old s-vhs jvc vcr and i can tell you my outputs s-video when playing old vhs tapes :) and when useing all inputs on this vcr INC. R.F. input.

    also vcrs can be used as a/v switching box as thay have 2-3 inputs+ R.F input. eg: dvd player , ps2 , sky, but mine jvc vcr only has one s-video input
    so not the best way to use other high end a/v

    hope you find this info useful jas

    Thanks for that JAS.
    I'm leaning towards purchasing a JVC S-VHS. Unbeatable have the HRS5965 for sale at 100 quid. Anybody out there using this with a Z2?
