i will post up later but in the mean time which i can also post an image later but hopefully its a easy fix but in vraysample rate i cant remove the red out the windows (well the blinds) it completely fills the whole window red and no matter how much i up the subdivs it wont shift but everywhere else is perfect, if i remove the blinds then it returns blue so its defo the blinds but i have both light and material subdiv upto 800 but it still all red.

any idea's ?

How are your lights set up?
Do you have a VRay Sun and a VRay Light with the Skylight portal option on the window / blinds? You wouldn't need to have such high subdivs unless maybe you're using a Dome light.

I don't know what the extra passes are, but it sounds like the subdivs on the lights in the window (please tell me these are set to sky portal mode) are too low.
Alternatively you might have some dodgy geometry in your scene (multiple polygons sitting in the same plane)

no the window lights are not set to portal and the intensity is only 15 on each window and as for geometry there is no collision at all i have triple checked as i also thought that aswell. just for curiosity i went mad on all sundivs because it was driving me nuts but still exactly the same and yet lights and material was at 1000. it only affects the blinds and nothing else

It think your lighting is the source of the problem.
Set the lights at the window to skylight portals and exclude the blinds. 16 subdivs should do.
I don't know how your image looks but from your description you could also probably use Reinhard color mapping and adjust the settings to help with the anti aliasing on the blinds.
