Got my Hitachi plasma yesterday and took my time setting up the sand and new comonent output dvd player. Then I hit problems... 1. Dvd player using 3 component leads gives horrible vertical banding acroos the whole screen bands about 1cm wide. 2. Svideo input from sky box (scart) is black and white, very, very slightly off vertical bands. Same black and white pic from Scart ouput to svideo when I use dvd player. 3. Composite video input from sky box (scart) is non exixtant. "No synch signal!" then into power save after a few seconds. I have definitely got scsrt to svideo and scart to composite cables that go in the right direction. I have been through every setting in the manual and I can't see a reason for the display not to be working. I have connected a pc to the dsub connectors and got a superb display, dvd playback was great and no banding whatsoever. So inherently the screen seems to be OK. However the display panel has a "video unit" basically an expansion card containing the additional input. My bet is that this has a problem somewhere. Is there anything else that I could be doing wrong, I am at the end of my ideas after 24 hrs of less than satisfactory twiddling. I am back to Richer Sounds tomorrow morning at 10.00 when they open , but I cant go lugging a 42" plasma back to the shop. I Anyone have any ideas of other things to try?
