    Scart connection I think is best for the sky box connection. Set box to RGB and connect to AV1 on tv.
    Settings vary but a good start point is -
    Brightness 50-60
    Contrast 63
    Colour 60-65
    Movie plus
    colour enhancement on.
    Sharpness 1-2
    digital processing like DNR etc. minimum
    There is a thread with these setting if you do a search for pf9986.
    I'm sure Jimsan will be along soon to help with this as they are his settings and a very good start point.
    The remote code is 0081 I think .
    Hope this helps for the time being.

    Good RGB scart from Sky+ to TV Ext1 as nnicol says.

    Remote codes and button sequence can be found here:
    http://www.satcure.co.uk/tech/digicode.htm

    I used a 3 digit code (065) on my old standard Sky remote. This seems to allow the volume control to work better???

    Access firmware by entering 123654 on the Philips remote and reading the top line. you'll find 1.3, 2.0, 2.1, 2.2, 2.3, 2.4 or 2.5 along this top line.

    Nnicol's basic settings are fine...

    Have fun.

    i understand it is best a scart without audio and separate audio cables (red and white).

    v2.3 if just grand....

    I actually bought two scarts from www.tvcables.co.uk They only cost £5.99 each and are astonishing quality! Gold connectors, metal bodies, good shielding. Not saying they are as good as the silly expensive ones, but they do a fantastic job.

    You don't need separate audio cables unless you are connecting a DVI device. The scarts audio is fine.

    Keep 'em comin' Mark!
