    I just set up my 37in PV500 and hooked up my sky + via AV1 on the panny, the scart i'm using is a Ixos, not sure of the ref but it was £20 anyway. I'm not really happy with the PQ from sky, text on the planner for example is not very clear, there's a lot of blur to the text, not sure of the best way to describe it really but I'm sure you'll know what I mean.
    What's the best cable to use given I've only got a budget of approx £40-50 pound this month.
    It's driving me mad!
    I'd really appreciate your advice guys.

    :lease:

    Yeah m8 done that but it's still not very crisp - Going to try out a couple of cables from a hi fi dealer to see if that makes the pq any better.

    I have my sky digital ( not sky + ) connected with a philex thor scart and my panasonic dms er 10 dvd recorder. They are normally £30 but can be bought at tvcables.co.uk for £18. I also have a TH37PV500 and i think the picture quality is very good i think these cables are a steal. They are also the same price shipped if you are outside of the U.K.

    I also use the philex ones with my 37 pv500 and pq is outstanding.

    Cheers.

    cheers for the advice lads - I might give them a try. I plugged in a cheap scart just to compare to PQ to the ixos £20 cable and there was no difference at all. Here's hoping a more expensive cable will offer me the PQ I want.
    Anyone got a rgb/composite converter box ? Will this offer a soloution?
