    I have just tried the Sky+ digibox RGB output through the Iscan HD+ (this is connected to the media box via DVI to HDMI using a wireworld ultraviolet) via comp1. I cannot see hardly any improvement in picture quality, is this normal?
    I have tried 720P/50 & 60 and 1080i/50 & 60.
    I am a relative novice re: scalers and plasma screens so I may need to do some configuration, I will book and ISF once I have everything bedded in.

    Hmmm, RGB and 720p/50 should have been agood place to start.
    How have you connected the Sky+ to the iScan?
    Have you run any test patterns from the iScan yet?
    You need to verify whether you are getting pixel-mapping.
    Try connecting the iScan to the plasma by VGA and setting the output to 1280x768/50Hz.

    Not tried any test patterns yet or VGA.

    The digibox is connected via a Monster Scart to Component + sync converter then component cables to Iscan. Digibox is outputting RGB.

    You won't be able to pixel match. But you do need to display up the various grayscale patterns to adjust the contrast/brightness controls on the plasma to match the output of the iScan. Then on the iScan you need to adjust contrast/brightness controls specifically for the Sky input to get the best image.

    Don't often use iScans so can't remember any other trick adjustments you might need to do, surprised your dealer didn't do some of this for you?
