    Does anyone have the JVC HV28D40 or HV32D40? I would like some opinions on these TV's from people who have them. What you think of them? Are there any negative features I should be aware of? What is the picture like? What is it like when using RGB sources? How is the Digital text? All opinions are welcome. :)
    If anyone has a recent JVC TV that can tell me how their TV handles RGB sources that might be helpful as well. I ask because I read that the JVC TV's cannot alter the brightness on RGB sources and I just wanted to know whether this was true. I hope someone can help me with this as I am thinking of purchasing the HV28D40.

    I have an 28" hitachi TV, its quite old but i can't change the brightness while using RGB, infact i can't change any settings.

    But my TV is old so maybe it's not very good compared to modern sets.

    :offtopic:

    Also when this tv has an RGB input it over rides all others, so i can't recieve terrestrial or use the second scart (S-video) or the from S-Video :confused:
    All i get is an scanning (moving from top corner to the other bottom corner) RGB source picture, although the sound from the selected channel comes through fine.

    Thanks GaryB I read the whole thread with interest, I got the pdf manual you uploaded as well and will read that when I get chance. I didn't see any reference to changing the RGB brightness though and that was an important point. Can the brightness and contrast be adjusted on this TV when watching a RGB source? It could be answered in the manual but might not.

    The manual didn't answer the question, does anyone know whether this TV can change the brightness/contrast on RGB sources?

    I have checked one of these and can confirm that the Brightness & Contrast do work on an RGB input.
