    I have got myself a s-video cable. When it is connected to my TV the image is scrambled and therfore I am unable to select 480p.
    How can I get round this problem?

    Any help and suggestions would be gratefully received. [​IMG]

    s-video doesn't support 480p. You need component for it.

    Okey dokey, that's cleared up but I'm still wondering why there is a scrambled image.

    If it's scart connected try the other scart socket if you have another. often on TV's only 1 of 2 scart connectors support s-video.

    No it's specifically an s-video connector.

    It might be built for ntsc consoles only.
