    Hi,

    Should s-video via scart (scart connector at both ends and the dvd set to ouput s-video through its scart socket and tv socket should accept s-video) really work?

    Im asking this because when i set my dvd player to output s-video via scart i get a fuzzy picture with hardly any color in it. I tried it on another tv and it was very clear however absolutely no color!!

    I'm supposing none of the scart sockets on both tv's which i used are designed to accept s-video. But why the different result?

    Thanks

    S-video can indeed be sent via scart lead. I suspect the problem is at the TV end, as you suspect.

    Thats because your only getting through the luminance component of the picture signal :) You need to go into the set up menu on the television and configure the scart input to accept a S-video signal :thumbsup:

    Is there some form of adapter that changes the s-video signal to an RGB signal? (im not expecting to get the RGB signal since the source is S-video but i assume its always better then component).
    Or even easier, is there a way to re-wire the scart to do such a thing?

    THanks
