First try a composite cable (Yellow one) or and "S" video cable (cable with 4 little pins)and see that it plays. : : I've seen plenty of information about how the Australian and UK : versions of PAL are different (i.e. PAL B/G vs PAL I). However, I've : also seen information that this only applies to TV signals through the : aerial.
Yes. : : I'm using a SCART to component cable to connect the DVD to the TV and : from what I've read, considering that both the TV and the DVD player : use PAL. there should be no incompatibility problems.
Are you *SURE* it is SACRT - Component and not SCART - RGB? Both RGB and Component have Red, Blue and Green leads BUT the systems are not interchangeable hence my earlier suggestion about leads. I bet you are trying to feed RGB into a component TV. try the other leads first and then*IF* they work you will know that I guessed right. : : Can anyone confirm whether the PAL issue applies to DVD players too?
Yes but I do not believe this is the problem. : : Thanks very much!
