      No audio via Scart to second room

      Hello,

      I've been trying to troubleshoot an issue all afternoon with no luck, and this is a sort of last ditch attempt to see if there is anything I might have missed.

      In a social club I go to, there is a Sky+ HAD box connected via HDMI to a TV. The sound for this normally goes through an amp to a speaker system for the main room, but I've turned this off so the sound can go through the main TV speakers instead.

      In the back of the sky box there is an RF Out, which I don't know where that goes, and a Scart lead which goes to a projector in the second room. The picture comes through to the second room, but no audio does.

      To complicate matters, the audio from the projector comes out back to a separate input switcher and then onwards to the actual speakers for the second room.

      I have checked the audio in/out on the projector, and the in/outs on the switcher, and have obviously checked that the speakers work.

      I've checked the Scart lead doesn't have My bent pins etc and it seems okay, but I don't have anything else to plug into it to test the cable, and the cable itself must be nearly 100ft long and runs above the ceiling tiles so I can't easily replace it.

      Any suggestions?

      I'm sure that you have already checked but it wouldn't hurt to check again that the scart lead is correctly inserted so that all the pins are fully meshed.
      Is it a scart plug on the end of the lead in the second room? If so have you also checked that this is securely plugged in?

      It does seem odd that there is no audio at all as a broken core would only effect either the left or right channel not both. Do you have another (short) scart cable that you can use to feed the local TV (assuming that it has a scart input) from the Sky+ HD box, in place of the HDMI cable, to prove that the Sky box itself is not faulty?

      Have you checked that Scart control is switched on in the box settings? You could also try setting rhe output RGB,
