I'm truly stuck and in need of some advice. Trying to connect a JVC XV-D701 DVD player to the Sony but when trying to watch DVD's all I get is either a blank screen or a black and white picture. Whats even worse is that if I use a cheap and cheerful scart connection - Xbox 360 is using the RGB - I get both picture and sound. BUT use an IXOS scart to s-video, or IXOS scart to scart I get either a B+W image or no image at all?? Am I missing something really obvious? I know I should upgrade the DVD player to something newer with HDMI connection but I'd prefer to wait until the Blue-Ray/HD DVD contest is sorted.
