I am the recent happy owner of a Viera pe30b. I understand that of my 3 SCART inputs, 2 are RGB-compatible and one is not (composite-only, I presume). My understanding of the 2 SCART modes (composite v RGB) comes largely from here: http://www.hut.fi/Misc/Electronics/faq/vga2rgb/scart.html, which leads me to believe that a signal is output (e.g. from a DVD player) in either composite-only mode or composite+RGB mode. An RGB-enabled input will take the RGB signal if available, else take the composite one. A non-RGB-enabled input will always take the composite one. I therefore expected that the Viera's non-RGB scart input would show anything I fired at it. But connecting either my laptop or my gamecube (via composite cable + SCART adapter) to this SCART socket results in a black & white picture (audio is fine). I've tried 2 different SCART adapters. My Philips DVD player allows me to select SCART output mode. When I plug the DVD player into the offending SCART socket, I get a black & white picture when I output in RGB mode, and a perfect picture when I output in (so-called) s-video mode. To make matters harder to fathom, occasionally my PC & gamecube have displayed a perfect colour picture on the offending SCART input...but after switching the TV off, it always goes back to B&W... Can some helpful person please explain what's happening? The behaviour of the DVD player suggests that (when I've got it in RGB mode) it's broadcasting an RGB-only signal, so displays in B&W on the non-RGB SCART input. But when I connect my laptop/gamecube, I'm using composite cables and SCART adapters containing very few pins, so I can't believe these signals are being input as RGB. And why do they work sometimes...? I can find no Viera menu which lets me set the input mode of the SCART sockets. Thanks in advance, a very puzzled Feanor.
