Hi All Having lurked on here for the past week or so, I went into Lakes in Bracknell this afternoon to have a proper look at the Philips 32PF9986. I was astonished at how badly they had it set up so asked for a proper demo with a progressive scan DVD player. The guy pulled a Panasonic S97 (?) and then proceeded to try to connect it up with a scart cable to the Scart 3 socket. Now, as I understand it, progressive scan outputs aren't supported by scart connections, the Scart 3 socket on the 9986 doesn't support RGB, and you need to use a component to DVI cable or connection block to make it all work properly. Anyway, it was all too much trouble so I agreed to go back in tomorrow, after he says it is properly set up. My concern is that I'm not sure they know what they're doing there....does anyone have any direct experience of Lakes? The advertised price (£2299) includes a DVD Recorder (Philips DVDR80 - any opinions?), 3 year warranty and 12 months interest free credit but they may be willing to negotiate. So, I should be looking for this set to be demonstrated with both component video into the DVI connector and (as a comparison) an RGB Scart feed into the RGB 1 or 2 - is that right? Final point (last one honest!) I plan to hook up a laptop using a VGA cable - from the specs on the Philips web site it says it supports XGA resolution (1024 x 768) but does this stretch across the screen or keep the correct 4:3 ratio for this resolution? Thanks for taking the time to get this far. Any and all answers/comments gratefully accepted.
