hello everyone. happy new year. ive got a question here for somebody who knows about digital receivers. i guess it would concern all digital receivers since they work in a similar way. the receiver has two scarts, from video scart image comes good and clear while from the TV scart the image comes distorted and very very milky(as if britness is extremely high), sometimes getting black and white, sometimes giving weird colours, but always distorted. the receiver wears STi5518MVB-X. ive came across this very damage in other recivers too, but never managed to fix it. does someone know, what is happening? why from one scart image is good and from other is distorted and milky?thanx

Hi there,

I think that the reception (signal ) is weak hence it's clear with the video scart & unclear while using the latter.
this is happening to me hence I need to reset the dish first before I change the cable ..

Have you check the SCART leads - not all are the same and not all pins may be connected (just a chance).

You can usually only get RGB from the scart labeled "TV". As there is no "S video" output from most STB's a RGB2S video convertor is the best way of recording the signal.

try a 75 ohm termination,tv out usually requires this. check the input
to your monitor and see if it has a termination setting
just a guess 'boxnut'
