I don't want to sound pedantic, but have you checked your v+ box with another Scart-enabled TV?

Re: tv picture keeps flashing green

This is 100% a SCART issue, VM will be unlikely to help with this, you need a new scart cable, otherwise it is the scart socket on the back of the tv, it could also be the scart socket on the virgin box, but that is very unlikely. You can fix this temporarily buy going into the virgin box setttings, and changing the scart output to composite, (in the vbox this is settings, 4, not sure about v+ but will be similar) in this mode you picture will be in full colour, but not as good quality and much less sharp.

 

 

I recommend getting a new scart cable  (an RGB compatable one), but is it does turns out to be the socket on the back of the tv then there is not much you can do about it, even if you have 2 scart sockets on your tv, the spare scart socket will not support RGB anyway, so it will be no better that the temporary solution i gave you above.

Re: tv picture keeps flashing green

My TV sometimes flashes between red and blue. Tried asking 'Jenny' but no use at all. I eventually solved this myself by pressing the reset button on the V-box.
