i have just bought one of these puppies and on the whole very impressed. i haven't set the picture up properly, (not quite sure how!?!) but am a little concerned about banding in the picture when watching Teresterial TV from Telewest or my DVD. it also seems overtly dark Is that normal?) i am connected via the Scart terminal board that came with it (AV Sales advised me that the difference between this and the VGA convertor, was hardly noticable) to my DVD and cable box. i also have a XBOX connected to the vga to componant socket and it looks beautiful (although i can see those blue dots everyone else seems to) - so the picture is good. if i were to buy a componant dvd recorder (E85 for instance), and input my cable box through that, would that cure all my banding problems?
