    How can one type of connector have 3 differnet ways of labelling it ? Blows my mind.

    I was going to go G R B as that is the order on the back of my dvd player , but still not sure...

    Do you know what would happen if they were wrong ? Would you get nothing ? Or a picture but lower quality than it should be ???
    Or will it all self destruct :eek:

    Some DVD players helpfully label the sockets! I guess coloured sockets would have added to the price, and how much has it cost you to find out without that?

    Before you do anything you need to ensure your Digibox has been set to RGB - best to do this whilst its still connected to your old TV or grab a portable as you cant see the on screen menus via the RGB converter if the Digibox is set to Output Composite (SKY call it PAL).

    mmmm , something not right here, no picture

    Just to clarif checked the back of my PWD7 and this is how the component BNC leads are connected -

    Pr/Cr/R - Red
    Pb/Cb/B -Bue
    Y/G - Green

    Tried on the JS with -

    Y - Red
    U - Green
    V - Blue

    Also checked Sky on the other TV, it is set to RGB and SCART CONTROL is on?

    Any ideas guys , the living room looks like a bomb has hit it !

    flicked through the inputs and only have PC, DVD3 and Input2 coming up.

    The dvd input was from where i had my dvd player connected to it breifly last night to test the screen and that was connected with the same component lead i am trying to connect the JS box with so i know that lead is good.

    Didn't spot the deliberate error there. Y=G U=B V=R The Y on it's own should give a B/W picture.

    do you have a dual slot board? 5 BNC? if so you need to select it as component input select the input and press "SET UP" then select Component and make sure the cables are connected properly and the BNC's are twisted all the way round.

    I have to admit I was being cruel - spotted it first time around but had to go get dinner and didn't have time to make another post.
