I have a Sony GX3 DVD recorder but cannot get a picture from it on my Philips LCD 30PF9975 via component only leads. It works fine with a scart connection but I hear that component gives the best picture. I've switched component to 'on' in the Sony menu, but when I switch to the Philips socket 5 - component in, all I get is a blue screen with 'picture format not available'. Spoke to Philips today who told me the Sony needs to output progressive component signals and not interlaced ones to be compatible with the Philips component input requirements. Sony not open today to ask which of these their machine outputs. Does this mean anything to anyone? What am I doing wrong?
