Z4 and S-video


Well-known Member
Does anyone know of any issues with the Z4's and S-video?

I finally set up my av equipment (had it months, finished renovating today), and have a 12m Bettercables S-video cable which has been embedded in walls etc. Not getting any picture from the projector, just the blue screen. Tried changing the PAL/NTSC etc settings but still nothing. Also tried a 1m Ixos S-video cable but nothing either.

I reckon it could be really simple, but have no idea. That or my new projector is bust.....

I've tried two cables, both brand new, and neither worked. I'll try them on a TV this morning....

What are you running the svideo lead from?
If your running it from a freeview box then make sure that the output setting is set to s-video - The default setting will be composite..
This may be the reason, otherwise its probably a naff lead..
