    Anyone have any problems with an overly dark RGB picture with Philips sets (mines is a 32PW6506) ?. My NTL digibox gives a fine picture through it, but dark areas from XBOX and PS2 lack any kind of detail. Had 2 different sets and both did the exact same thing.

    Also anyone know of any SCART switch boxes which dont cause interference ?

    Any help would be appreciated,

    Cheers,

    Andy

    The philips 6006 is well known to have this RGB problem, although mine and a few others seem to be okay.

    Try a search on dark RGb problem philips 6006, there is something in the service menu that will adjust contrast, but I doubt it will really solve the problem, sorry. :rolleyes:

    Do a search on Philips and RGB issues as there are many threads pertaining to this.

    i have the problem on my 32 inch 6006(search my previous posts), my philips ex-itvdigital box is perfect thru rgb, my ps2 is way too dark and unwatchable and my sony dvp-ns305 dvd player is ok with light and bright areas but no detail on dark scenes and dark areas. i have to use s-video except digibox. its funny how some items are fine some so-so and some useless? :confused: i have tried tweaking all service menu settings with no luck. have not adjusted the ops settings as i do not know what they adjust, but they must adjust something important. anybody any ideas?

    I recall members in the past discovering that Philips own kit works fine with RGB, but other brands are dark, as you say.

    In fact, I recall some members, when discussing the matter with Philips themselves, being advised to use a Philips-brand DVD player.

    I don't know if this is true or not, but your post has made me think about it again. Makes me think that there is something about the make-up of the RGB signal that is output from a Philips product that is more 'compatible' with their own TVs, or which 'compensates' for some 'deficiency' in the set. Of course, a similar RGB signal might be output from other brands (but obviously not Sony in this case, based on your post).

    This doesn't affect all of their TVs though (e.g. I used to have a PW6515 for a bit and that looked great with RGB via my Sony DVD player).

    Very frustrating if it does mean that you can only use certain brands though :rolleyes:

    Hi - I am also having the same RGB problem with my 32PW6506. There is a noticeable darkening of the picture with a blue tint when RGB is selected on either my DVD or Digibox. Anyone know how to cure this?

    My brother has the same problem with his Philips 20" 4:3 flatscreen tv, when using his PS2 player.
    He uses composite because of this.
