All, I just treated myself to a JVC HRS6855EK S-VHS VCR. I'm connecting the VCR to my Wharfedale 28" widescreen CTV 890 with a 21 pin Scart lead. When I try recording in SVHS and set the video output on the VCR scart socket to S-Video the picture displayed on my TV is in Black & White. If I switch to the second Scart on the TV the picture is still Black & White. Checking the JVC web site FAQ it suggests the scarts sockets on the TV need setting to accept S-video input. Speaking to Wharfedale it seems that both Scarts are fixed to RGB input only (Great !!). They claim however that I can get an S-video input into the side of the TV but I reckon this is only a composite video input. So Does anyone know if :- a) I can change the Scarts so they will accept s-video in b) The input on the side of the CTV 890 will take s-video c) There is another solution. If not i've got a bloody s-vhs vcr that is only playing in vhs mode. Very frustrating !! Mike.
