    Hi, just after getting a new 42" lcd tv and at the moment Im getting a better picture through the rf aerial socket than the scart. The scart is brighter and seems a slight bit more pixal in the background but the close ups are ok but still bright where as the rf is a more natural and soft picture and no pixal. Pixal might not be the best word to describe the picture maybe a video that was recored in LP might be the best describtion. I was led to believe that scart was always the best way to go with these 2 options. Im I missing something here or does this happen with larger tvs. Thanks for any help

    PS. The scart leads are gold plated

    There are Scarts and then there are Quality Scarts, just because it has the magic word "GOLD" means nothing. I think Asda were selling "GOLD" Scarts for £2.99, but so do the likes of QED for £35+ but that is were the comparision finishes.
    What is your source, if Sky then have you set the picture settings to 16:9 not 4:3 and RGB not PAL, that is an example, but until you tell us your source everyone is stuck?.
