    I was looking through the menu on my Hyundai screen and noticed the setting for 'clock phase' What does it/they do? It's only available as an option when it's on the component channel? Just curious is all! :confused:

    I don't know. So I went looking - and it was interesting !

    http://www.techmind.org/lcd/phasexplan.html

    This explains it a little, but there is a test page here:

    and playing about with my settings was quite interesting. I was out of phase, did an auto adjust and screen was perfect on the test pattern.

    The above refers to LCD and I did the test on a PC LCD monitor but I suspect the principal is the same.

    Cheers for that!

    So this is the same for a plasma as it is an LCD? I haven't had a play with in case I break something! I take it this isnt something you would notice without a test screen?

    I would think the principal is the same (LCD vs Plasma) and unless you have an auto adjust option I would not play too much. Certainly make a note of the settings before.

    Was thinking of linking the PC with (http://www.techmind.org/lcd/phasing.html) test page and playing with my clock phase settings on the Plasma. I did only try on my Dell 17" PC monitor and it does have auto adjust.....phew !!
