    Hi Everyone

    Had my tosh for about a month now and quite happy. Two problems though just wondering if anyone can shed any light.

    1 Football, I seem to be getting a Halo effect when watching football, only appears when watching sky sports though, BBC and ITV analogue seem fine? I have tried changing the modes but I can't seem to get rid.

    2 Does anyone every experience times when the picture needs a moment to correct itself, such as if the programme pans quickly to another image, it seems to go fuzzy for a millisecond and then correct itself.

    I normally have it on Natural with the contrast down to 40, if anyone has any ideas please post.

    Thanks

    Dean

    Hi, I watch football via Freeview on my 32ZP48 (which has the same video processing as the 36ZP48) I find the pictures are excellent for us. I watch in the natural scan mode like you. Regards, yt.

    I've just bought a 32zp48 and have noticed the fuzzy/blurring when the picture pans quickly. Hoping it will be helped by the new SCART leads I have ordered.

    Otherwise TV seems fine - football seemed ok when I was watching the play-offs yesterday through NTL. What about stepping down to 50HZ?

    hmmmm

    Seems odd that you upgrade your tele and then have problems.

    I noticed the halo problem whilst watching the simpsons as well yesterday.

    I bought some top quality scart leads 69.99 from comet and switched to RGB in the sky+ menu but I still get the problem. It is worse the brighter you have the picture, but its not there on the analouge signal.

    I had no idea there were known problems with Sky+ and 100hz television sets, I am very annoyed as I watch more football than anything on my tele.

    Is there anything anyone else can suggest?

    This is a side effect of the digital processing and affects most modern TV's to a greater or lesser extent.

    Non-Forum members probably don't notice it!

    I'm afraid better Scart cables won't improve it (although they do have other advantages).

    Dean,

    Please see above.

    Don't be dis-heartened. You've chosen an excellent TV!

    Happy viewing. :)
