Do you mean the horizontal line travels up the screen or do you in fact mean a Vertical line?

Viera Link is simply Panasonic name for HDMI CEC control, in other words if you connect say a blu ray player or AV Receiver which has HDMI CEC control they can talk to each other, example; I turn on my Blu ray & it then turns on my Amp. & TV & selects the correct HDMI input, you can also control the TV via either the Amp. or Blu ray remote & vice versa.

If you are not getting any Digital channels with your aerial connected this is not a TV fault (providing you have tuned them in) it's down to your aerial not being good enough to receive the channels assuming they are available in your area.

why do you want to use your Virgin box via scart rather than HDMI??


Active Member
Have you got another device that can output on Scart? Does it do the same?
Maybe you Virgin box is dodgy.
