I know this is old technology but I still need to do this: I am trying to make a Sony DVR work with an old Pace decoder. The Pace only has SCART connectors and the best input on the Sony is s-video. I have a SCART adaptor with s-video connector. When I plug this straight into the TV, the picture is as good as s-video ever is. However, when I plug it into the DVR, which upconverts to HDMI or component, I get colour interference artefacts on both outputs. Any strong, solid block of colour, especially anything deep red (like the Sky News logo), casts a prominent shadow completely across the screen, causing any flesh tones or light colours in it’s path to turn a sickly shade of grey. Wherever strong colours appear there are streaks across the screen. S-video sources other than the Pace decoder do not cause this effect. I can also get rid of it by running the video through my Yamaha amp, which has s-video switching connectors on all inputs. Only the aux input gets rid of the effect altogether, though any input greatly improves it. This makes me wonder if the problem might have anything to do with one of the signals from the Pace being too strong. Does anyone know anything about this? Can this grey ‘bleeding’ effect be eliminated by something as simple as attenuating the signal? Any help would be much appreciated.
