    I set the picture some time ago with a set-up disc but just recently I’m finding the skin tones especially in the studios are looking like that guy David Dixon? Could some one who has use a setup disc let me know their settings.

    Also my number 1 key on the remote need a lot of pressure to work, can this easily be repaired at home, if not will it still come under my extended guarantee.?

    What a horrid thought :laugh:.



    It would appear that your Colour setting has changed Garrett. Not sure why this would have happened - maybe just reverted to default or something. Anyway, I set all my levels with Avia - which offcourse is optimised for NTSC but I tweaked a little here and there to achieve a good result with PAL material as well. Settings as follows:

    Colour: 36 (anything from 32-36 looks good)
    Contrast: 38
    Brightness: 25 (Aconda default was 23)
    Sharpness: 1 (lowest setting and takes some getting used to)

    Give them a go and see if it helps any. Your default settings on your Aconda might be different to mine and your room lighting conditions will vary but see what you think anyway :).

    Not sure if the remote will be covered under the extended guarantee - is it with Domestic & General? Have a look at the fine print if you have the documentation. It doesn't sound like a major problem though and the area inside/around the Number 1 key might just need cleaned. You can take the Control 150 apart as it's just clipped together. Be careful and prise it apart one side at a time.

    :).

    Thanks for the reply groundy:smashin:

    I have been using those settings and been giving them some time to adjust to which I now think is all right, apart from the sharpness. Which I had at 2 before and find 1 takes a lot of detail out of things. So I have gone back to 2 I even think it could stand a bit more.

    Can’t see how to prise the back of the remote.
