    I have been inputing S-Video from my DVD Player into my JVC widescreen TV as the RGB looked far too dark and dull. There was a lack of colour and I would have to turn the brightness up to about 90% just to see some scenes.

    But, recently I discovered how to get into the service menu (hold down info and mute button together). Now, there is an option called "TEXT (RGB) CONT" and it was set to -60. I have now set it to +20 and the RGB picture looks great, but I want to know what I have actually done.

    If this will damage my TV please tell me but it looks great.

    Should be fine mate. I had to do the same thing on my old sony 29" and that was ok for years.

    Not sure exactly what the setting means but it looks like the RGB contrast had been set too low in the factory.

    Happy viewing.:)

    Cheers :smashin:

    At least I know it won't damage it.

    I have now tested RGB against S-Video. Dark scenes look a lot better on RGB as there is a lot more detail. But apart from that there isn't much difference.

    But thanks, that has put my mind at ease :)
