Hi has anyone else tried a Dreambox with a digi sender gold transmitter and receiver?

reason i ask is I had one for my subbed box which worked fine and also used it on my Dbox2 with no problems at all. BUT when i have come to try it on my dreambox it works but the picture is in black and white on the receiver end. I made sure it was seated ok etc buit no joy still black and white.

Anybody any ideas why? has anybody tried any other digi senders to see if they work?

I only need it working for the next month or so as I am in process of decorating a room so when i get to lifting the carpet I am running some sat cable into the room where the receiver is and will buy another dreambox and use my splitter that I have had sat here for 3 months :)

Regards

Not sure but it sounds like a s-video issue

Edit, sorry will enlighten on that if you out put a RGB scart outut into a S-Video input you will get a black and white picture (unless your scart output can deliver s-video) most video senders only do compersite, maybe yours being "gold" is doing s-video, and the dream is not out puttin s-video over scart. Just a guess but it works for me.

mm sounds interesting that theory m8 will look in to the digisender gold itself and look see what they say

thanks for the info
