    Hi All,

    I've just got the JS RGB to S-vid converter. Big dramatic increase in picture quality.

    Thing is there's also a quite visible diagonal stripey sort of interference patern which is there both though D-Scaler and when running from the converter direct to the S-Vid input on the PJ (Panasonic PT-LC75).

    Has anyone experienced this sort of thing and are there any ways of reducing or eliminating it?

    As always, thanks for any collective wisdom you guys can put my way

    Check your cables.

    I had this problem, it was caused by a £15 S-Vid cable from Comet. Swapped it for a £2 one and it was fine.

    Thanks Jonny,

    It makes sense - I'm using a pretty thin floppy looking 10m cable I picked up cheap a while ago just to get me started.
    The HTPC is close to the digibox so a decent 2m cable from Richer Sounds may well sort me out.

    Strange how a £2 one killed the diags, though??:)

    I posted a similar problem under herrignbone interference on dscaler or soemthign along thos lines. I still ahve not rectified the problem. It isn't the cable or my RGB to s-video convertor.
