    Hi Guys,
    been reading the forum for ages and used all the handy advice to decide on a PW6. I installed it this weekend and its amazing! :thumbsup: Very happy with picture quality etc! I got it from NexNix and the service was spot on!

    I only have 1 issue;
    I am using the JS RGB to VGA box and have my Pioneer DVD going to VCRScart input on Sky+ then the TVScart output going into the JS Box, then obviously VGA to PW6.
    I am also using the optical input on the Pioneer for my sound from Sky+.

    If I have the Pionner on and Sky+ off everything is fine.
    If I have Sky+ on and the Pionner off everything is fine (besides no sound obviously).
    But if I have both on together as I need for picture from Sky+ and audio from Pioneer all I get on the PW6 is a black screen as if the Pioneer is taking the connection.
    (sorry if that is long winded!)

    I also tried my electronic automatic scart switcher (£30.00 from Argos).
    This solves the switching problem but whilst watching Sky I get intermitent black screen (no signal) flashing onto the screen. This appears to be happening during changing pictures such as adverts and less so when watching static images such as the football.

    Any ideas guys?????

    pressing "SKY" button on sky remote turns SKY RGB output on
    pressing "TV" button on sky remote turns SKY RGB output off (black screen cos sync still on)

    not doing summit silly like that are you.......just a thought as it caught me out!

    Nah mate, thanks for your reply but no matter what i press on the Sky remote if the Pioneer is on then that's all you can see on the screen!
    Really annoying!

    I've read elsewhere on the forum that the "no signal" flashes are due to the switch box thinking i have turned on another source. So i'm taking the box back to Argos and getting the cheaper £9.97 manual switcher.

    Any other ideas????

    on a cheap SCART cable
    first try removing pin 8 from the SCART between dvd & sky box
    if that don't work
    second try removing pin 16 from the SCART between dvd & sky box

    both these pins CAN be used for switching signals, so if you remove them the
    sky box won't be affected by the dvd player being on or off. If the sky box is off then you should still be able to view the dvd player.
