    I have a Sony widescreen non-digital TV which is plugged into a sky box, VHS and DVD players. When a large area of one colour appears on the screen it has a tendency to come over all pixelly. It has been suggested to me there may be some kind of sub-menu thingy which I can access to relieve this. Anyone know how I do this? I would be most grateful.

    Do you mean that if there is a large expanse of one colour with differing shades, instead of there being a smooth transition between, say dark to light blue, the transition is 'stepped' in blocks of noticably different shades of blue?
    If so then I think this is a symptom of the compression within the $ky signal.
    This might be better placed in the Satellite forum if this is the case.
    Am I on the right track anybody?

    Dear Stuart,

    Absolutely, that sounds right. The best examples I can give are when there is eg a lot of green, like a football pitch, or a lot of grey in day for night scenes in films.

    I will follow your advice and post my query on the satellite site. Thanks very much for the tip

    Me too; just moved from a sony 21" to a KV28LS60 widescreen and very disappointed to see how SKY performs on a 100Hz set. If only I could set it back to 50Hz to deal with SKYs shortcomings...
