'Fuzzy' red colour's using Sky and RGB feed?

Hey guys, got a new 4:3 TV (Sony LS21) and have the standard Pace Sky Digital box connected to AV1 using an Ixos Scart (RGB feed).

The picture is generally excellent, however on bright reds (in particular Sky News) the edge looks strange, looking like a 'zoomed image of anti-aliasing'.

Is this a known problem with the Sky RGB feed? Or is the the TV showing its budget (£260) price?

Cheers,

Have you tried lowering the contrast in the Sky Digibox's Picture settings? Also what are your TVs contrast and brightness settings like? They are always much to high when supplied originally.

Yeah contrast is at its lowest on Sky picture settings, and the TV contrast is also down...

Its strange because it does not occur on all channels that show bright red tones...

Its most noticable on Sky news (as the logos are static), and some of the music channels...

Could it be anything to do with the bitrate?

Well the bitrate theory can almost certainly be ruled out... Sky News is known for using a very high bitrate, and the music channels for frequently using very low ones!
