    Hi - sorry if this is really basic but I am a novice..

    I have just bought the above TV and would like some hints to improve both the picture and sound quality.

    At the moment I have a scart lead running directly from my NTL set-top box into the TV. I also have a scart deal running directly from my Sony DVD player into the TV.

    My VCR (Phillips) is connected to the NTL set-top box.

    There are no other bits of kit eg. a tuner, speakers (other than the ones I have attached to the TV) and the picture and sound quality are good but I am convinced they can be better.

    What extra bits of kit, special cables etc. can I buy to get that extra improvement in picture and sound and how do I connect them ?

    Thanks

    From the dvd player you could get a hdmi or dvi cable, or component, depending on what your dvd player is capable off.

    If it's just a regular dvd player (no upscaling or so), than RGB scart will be your choice.

    For the set top box, again, depends on the connection:

    Preferred:

    1) HDMI or DVI
    2) component
    3) scart RGB
    4) scart s-video
    5) composite.

    also check the specific thread for the settings lordpeewee posted which should improve your set too.

    Make sure you're using fully wired Scart cables (RGB compatible ones) and ensure that your Sky box is set to RGB.

    Also, remember that only 2 of the Scart sockets on the TV are RGB enabled (AV2 and 3 I believe).

    Check your dvd player to see if it's got 3 connectors that are red, green and blue; if you have that, you can connect your DVD player up using component cables, with potentially progressive scan. :thumbsup:
