Installed a new freeview box to my portable at the weekend and although it works there is a horrible yellow tinge to the picture. I went and replaced the box and the new one does the same. The colour is ok when the box is switched off.

Answers on a postcard please lol

Try changing the connecting lead. Preferably use a "gold" scart lead if possible.

Thanks

I did wonder about the scart lol

How much are the gold ones?
Not sure as I got mine a long time ago, but try Ebay.
I was told once by an engineer that the gold ones are a waste of time. No different to a good plain scart.

Thanks olgit if thats the case i'll just have to pretend that everyone has jaundice....
The "gold" ones have better quality cable and fittings with better conductivity. I find it makes quite a difference.

It's rather like using a normal piece of wire to connect your hi-fi speakers, compared to quality purpose built copper wire.
