[mythtv-users] Q: PVR350: svideo without composite connection gives B/W!

Maybe this has nothing to do with mythtv and maybe nothing with PVR350.

I used to have output to my tv set using mythtv and PVR350 via SCART.
I used to have stereo output via motherboard audio and solely COMPISITE
Actualy the tv is connected via an audio/tv receiver between tv and
PVR350/comp audio ---- audio/composite/svideo ----> RECEIVER <---- scart
-----> TV
Worked ok. But thought svideo could improve quality. St tried to use
SVIDEO cable connection to the squart as well.
Why do I want this?: it saves one cable and better video quality.

Problem: when I disconnect composite cable I get only B/W from the svideo
How do I get what I hoped for better color on my tv?
(Do I need to switch on/of different components to "signal" svideo use?)
Why do I want this?: less cables, simpler connections.

I do not use PVR350 <---- scart ----> receiver. This because there is no way
to feed audio into the scart from the computer (or do I need to patch
the cable for this
as a an improved method?).
