    New lcd tv
    After searching all my local shops and supermarkets unable to find a sonix had the video 7 version but was dead on arrival which made me lose faith and then it took 2 weeks to be collected
    I went to my local comet store and bought one of these beauties
    Specs Here

    What about RGB scart? Comet specs says no, have they got this wrong, if not that seems on the face of it to be a glaring omission, especially if you have Sky.

    Right then it has
    2 X Scarts
    1 X DVI
    1 X RGB
    1 X SVID
    Also PC Audio in
    And Audio in for Either Svid or rgb
    I must admit i do like LG products
    From my experience they are in the same quality leauge as the likes of sony etc but have a much more competative price range
    Link To LG site the link provided goes straight to the tv and specs

    looking at a way to feed sound from tv into my sony davs550 now

    speakers are ok but i would like a bit more oomph on the sound

    i presume a lead from scart 2 would send audio out?
