Son was delighted to receive a Pi yesterday, but we cannot seem to view
anything, using an ancient Sony portable TV. The only conventional PC
monitors we have use VGA.
The Pi has a yellow phono socket for video output. The TV has a
conventional TV aerial input, and a Scart socket. We don't have a lead
with Scart plug on one end, and three phono plugs on the other, but I
did find an adaptor thingy that is a Scart plug, with three phonos on
the back. No lead. I plugged that into the TV, and used an ordinary
audio lead, with phono plug on each end, to connect the adaptor to the
Pi. Nothing. Went right through the tuning band of the TV, but zilch.
What am I doing wrong or, more to the point, what else do I need to buy?
