I have the PFM-42V1E with DVI and SVGA inputs only.
I have a special lead that you can get with scart one end and SVGA other - perfect. It also comes with video sync and a little transformer - this is why you have no picture!
Try looking for SyncBlaster cables - there must be many suppliers / variations but i got mine at www.keene.co.uk
Be warned though a good cable will cost you 50-70 GBP.
Hope it helps

Re: connecting tv to dvd player
It should be fairly straight forwards.. Simply get the SCART to SCART Cable.. Connect up the Two, DVD to Screen, turn them on, selecting any input/outputs Format etc, setups from any Menus...then start player select "Play" & ya should see the Picture & hear the sound...

Firstly, please make sure you have connected the SCART cable correctly. This should be connected to a SCART OUT socket on the DVD player to one of the SCART IN or EXT sockets on the rear of the TV.
If you have correctly connected the SCART cable the TV should automatically switch to the AV channel when you switch the DVD player power on or insert a disc.
Switch your TV on, then switch the DVD player off and then on again. If the TV does not change to the AV channel you may have the SCART cable connected incorrectly.
Not all TVs automatically switch to the AV channel when the AV device is switched on. On some TVs the AV input is on channel 0 or 99. On other TVs the AV input is not assigned to a specific channel. On these TVs you need to look for a button marked "AV", "INPUT" or "SOURCE" - either on the TV remote or on the buttons on the front of the TV. The easiest way to do this is to insert a disk into the DVD player and start it playing. Then press the "AV" "INPUT" or "SOURCE" button (whichever one you have) repeatedly until you find the signal from the DVD player.
Please check your connections and try using the "AV" "INPUT" or "SOURCE" buttons. If you are still unable to watch your DVD player, please post back with the following information:
1. Model number of the Bush TV 2. Brand and model number of the DVD player 3. If you are using any remote other than the ones supplied with the TV or DVD player, the brand and model number of the remote.
I will then be able to tell you exactly how it should be connected and which buttons (if any) you need to press to access the AV channel.
almost all Dvd players are connected to a television by either a scart or a HDMI lead.
When you plug the scart into the back of your television (make sure its in properly) then turn the power on. on your dvd player.
This should automatically come on as scart leads send a voltage up the scart telling the tv to change to that source/av.
If it is connected via a HDMI cable then if you look at the back of your telly it will tell you what HDMI input number it is. then all you have to do is press the AV/ SOURCE button on your remote to select that number.
Right then, on the back of the virgin box there are 2 scart outlets, connect one scart from the TV scart port to the scart in on the DVD recorder, then connect one scart lead from the scart out on the DVD recorder to the TV. Find the DVD recorder source channel on the TV and then use the DVD remote control to find the digital input on the DVD recorder, this is usually AUX channel. Post back if you need any more help
Thanks, but no thanks, in the long run it is better to get a technician in to sort it, more expensive yes, but not so traumatic as trying to deal with someone by typing in answers to questions, the man I dealt with assured me I had two scart plugs on my TV. I only have one, so he said it can't be done, end of story.
Some dvd players do not have the switching line fro your tv to automatically select scart input but you will be able to select via the tv remote if there are no buttons marked av it can be an oblong with an arrow pointing inwards or you may have to select via the source menu on the tv if you have your original handbook it will give a helpline number for Asda.SUPER8.
I had the same problem. The answer is to use a scart lead on the freeview box and connect it to the input/output scart on the DVD. Then connect a scart lead from the TV out on the DVD to the TV.
You then press Video source on the DVD remote until 'scart' is displayed to pick the freeview channels.
Hope that helps
