    i have used a tech link scart to s videa adaptor in the back of my sky receiver and run a 20m tech link RL audio cables and a tech link 20m svideo cable from the adaptor to my 42in samsung plasma screen in my bedroom

    the problem i have is the picture is black and white ,i have checked the settings and it is set to PAL or AUTO but this makes no difference,i have also spoke to tech link and samsung but with no joy

    if i use one of the audio feeds as a video feed the picture is perfect
    any advice

    before anyone says move the sky to the bedroom i cant because i have a sony plasma inthe lounge

    cheers simon

    Howdy,
    Which sky digibox do you have?
    AFAIK only the latest Grudig's and the Pace Sky+ output S-video the others just do scart RGB & composite.
    You probs need a scart RGB to S-video conversion box if you want S-video.
    The colour picture thru yr phono will work but it will be a composite picture.
    I hope u haven't wasted the money on the scart. Fingers crossed...
