    At xmas a friend of mine brought some DVD's back from china, most I had seen so no bother there, but when I tried a Harry P the DVD changed the writing in the setup menu on my telly, made it look a bit like ITALIC!! I am convinced my picture is worse since I played that DVD even if it was only for about 3 mins as the lip sync was atrocious.

    I reset the telly to factory but to no avail. To my eyes the picture now lacks vibrancy and when I switch from AV to coax there is a flleeting glimpse of what the picture used to be ie nice colours and defenition.

    Is it feasible that a duff DVD can mangle a telly and is there a fix, apart from getting a new TV??

    thanks.

    Think you must be imagining it mate. Either that or the TV is on its way out, or the signal has deteriated from the coax.

    It is possible that the disc may have contained a virus but surley that would not effect a TV.

    Just goes to show that priacy is a crime, and crime does not pay:nono:

    Am I missing something here the guy is talking about a TV

    And I presume he is using a normal DVD Player not HTPC,

    so how the hell can he install Norton on his TV or DVD player :rotfl:

    What is it with people having no sense of humour when they connect to the net?
