    Green hue or Black and White!?!?!

    Ive recently got a D3A MVP, with a SCART output.

    In a nutshell heres my dilema:

    Using GBMVP.bin through SCART to SCART looks washed out, through SCART to S-vid it looks great, but either way crashes very often, sometimes at the first keypress, and can go out of sync after 10-15 mins of playback (the crashes are pretty random and associated with keypresses or ff/rw).

    Using dongle.bin or Dongle_24088.bin through SCART-SCART gives a green hue on the TV (ive read various haup forums detailing the gree/red sync issues - no solution in sight!). Using the same dongles using a SCART to s-vid gives me a black and white picture?
    The MVP is more stable however.

    Im guessing it might be to do with the fact i can adjust NTSC/PAL setting in GBMVP.bin?
    Anyone know how to rectify the B&W issue?

    Sub, ive included my logs following use of GBMVP.bin just in case they are useful (i didnt see any error logs though, and i zipped them right after the screen turned a funny pink colour and crashed)

    Thanks in advance!



    Specs: Opteron 146, ASRock Dual Sata2, built in LAN - latest drivers, Belkin F5D7630 modem/router. one MVP rev D3A lot 5103. anything else needed, just ask.

    Whoo Hoo

    I was getting sick of having loads of recordings but no way to watch these other than on my computer, so i thought id have to use the Haup software (which is absolutely awful - you forget the luxuries you get with GBPVR like episode titles etc!)
    When i tried it, i realised there was a config option.

    Using this i changed the settings to s-vid and PAL and the picture looked great.

    To my surprise when i fire GBPVR MediaMVP server back up my problems were fixed!! (using dongle 24088.bin)

    Now i can understand why the MVP is so popular!

    Gee Stu, didn't you see that in the WIKI
    ASUS P5K-PRO Q9300 2.5GHz | Win7x64 | 6GB RAM | ATI Radeon HD3400 PCIe Video Card | 1 x WinTV DMB-TH | Various HD's | AC66U | USB-UIRT | PCH-A100 | Hauppauge Colossus |
    If you've ever become frustrated because something in GBPVR or NPVR is not working, take a moment and consider this and this and this and this and this and this. Credit where credit's due; for one guy (with a wife and two kids), most problems are solved outrageously quickly. Patience.
