    Something funny going on or am I just daft?.

    Scart control off, No diff between RGB and PAL

    Scart control on, Big diff between RGB and PAL

    PAL is much more sharp and brighter. I know I could up my RGB settings but dont want to as the TV is only 3 days old ( 50" Samsung Plasma)

    Scart is plugged into the right socket. It is in TV on the sky box and RBG in the telly.

    Some TV's will not switch to RGB unless they receive a voltage on one of the scart pins (Scart Control) I believe it's pin 8
    Your TV must be one of those.

    Pin 8 is indeed the switching pin - but you should be asking this question in the dedicated Sky section.
    (See sticky/announcement at the top of this section)

    Ahh sorry, easy mistake though if you just read the title.

    Anyway what is this PIN 8 all about?

    Scart control on, Big diff between RGB and PAL. PAL being much better If RGB is not switched on should the pic not be the same no matter what I select?

    How do I fix this?

    MODS Please move this topic, sorry seems I posted in wrong place:oops:
