Default Re: Philips 22CS1002/05t TV

I've done a few tests and now know that it's not the vcrs or scart switcher boxes. It's the Spectrum, it's dedicated cable or the tv.

The Spectrum only outputs via Scart in rgb mode, which the tv doesn't support. However I've put rgb through before from other sources, and it results in flickering not loss of image. Also, as the various machines that I've used input scart but output by rf or phono, i would have assumed that they'd convert the rgb to the chosen output format.
They all worked fine when connected to the newer tv in the attic, no loss of picture and sound then.
So somehow, whatever signal is travelling via the switchers isn't (or is barely) getting to the tv. :/
