    Hi Gang
    Im new to this forum and am desperate for some help!!
    i bought a 30" Phillips Pixel Plus LCD TV back in April and the picture quality is superb!!
    But my problem is I have built a Media Centre Pc and I can connect it to the tv through a vga cable the desktop settings are set at 1024x768 and its magic but when I click on a game icon eg Tiger Woods the tv come up with the message "Picture Format Not Available"
    I took my pc to Comet where I bought it from and it was just the same
    I am waiting to hear from them today they say that it should support pc games no problem
    I think I will ask for a refund as this tv does not "DO WHAT IT SAYS ON THE TIN"
    Comet tend to agree with me can anyone help as I really like this tv and dont want to change unless i really have to
    Regards
    Lasswade :lease:

    I think the phillips UK version only supports 1024x768 resolution despite indicating it has a higher resolution - I think it's for none PC input.

    Try lowering the resolution of the game to 1024x768 or lower...

    Not a 100% sure, but think that's what I've read somewhere.

    Thanks Andy K for your quick reply to my post
    I have tried to drop the resolution down on the game to 800x600 but no luck
    can you suggest a tv that will allow me to play the games?
    Comet are phoning me today they have suggested a replacement
    Thanks Again
