    Any advice please on which one to buy (to sadly replace a Tosh 32" w/s). I know the Sony costs more but is it worth the extra cost? Will be used with Tosh VCR, Hitachi DVD, Sony AMP and Mission speakers.

    Thanks everyone

    The Philips 28DW6557 got 5 stars in Home Entertainment magazine, a best buy award in What Video and was voted TV of the Year by Home Cinema Choice so I guess you could say the magazines liked it!

    1 RGB Scart is less of an issue with an IDTV

    Yes most mags state that there is 1 RGB scart (but do they actually test the TV???) and the manual says that Scart 1 is RGB.

    (But I think what video and TV said it had 2 RGB in a review in Nov 2002 )

    And ...

    both scarts have the RGB sign (three dots in a triangular fashion)

    and I see no strange colours when I connect my DVD outputting RGB to Scart 2 (supposedly non RGB) and no difference in image quality between scart 1 and 2 when I use an RGB source

    So I believe both scarts are RGB
