I was wondering if someone might be able to help? We recently got Virgin installed. When the technicians came to install it, the TV's mains lead was broken so they couldn't do their 'medic check'. We got a new mains lead the next day, however as a result of the TV being really old, is has neither a scart socket or a HDMI socket. We have tried a DVI - HDMI connector, but the TV still doesn't work. We have tested the Virgin HD box with another TV, and it works fine, we've also tested the TV by connecting it to a Laptop using the HDMI cable, and this also works fine.

So I was wondering if there is any way to solve this? Someone suggested getting one of those cables that have a scart on one end (to plug into the Virgin box) and those three coloured progs (sorry for my lack of technical language!) on the other end (which the TV has availability for) to see if that works? But then if we get the scart plugged in, the HDMI lead still isn't plugged in anywhere?

Will it work? Are there alternatives? Sorry for my ignorance! Thank you for your help x
