    I bought a 42" samsung plasma and i am very dissapointed with the picture quality. The picture is very fuzzy.

    Someone told me that i need better quality scart leads like this:

    Will them scart leads make a big difference to the picture?

    Thanks, do any of the high street shops sell them? I want to be able to return them if there not that good.

    Will the thor scarts remove the fuzzy picture that i get?

    We have a cr@p picture on our Panny Viera connected to NTL. if you play a DVD is the PQ better? presumabley it is (shows up that the plasma is OK) set NTL output to RGB in the settings part. then get a decent cable, I have 1 cost £20 and PQ is 10 x better than originally.

    how close are you sitting? many people are disapointed being to close.... most scart leads are better quality than the sockets they plug into.. thicker better £10-15 should do (TV installer)

    I have Sky+ connected to my pwd6 via a 3metre Techlink scart ribbon and the PQ is awsome, especially on high data rate channels ie the BBC, ITV and C4 channels etc.

    Whats the diff between RGB only scart lead vs flat cable scart lead (as on the tvcables website) Is the flat cable better/worse than the standard 'cord like' cable?
