    Just got this TV today and generally its sublime. But via the RGB scart it does become pixelated sometimes, espeically notcable on Sky channel "Trouble". Even though it was apparent on some Sky One programmes, i was just wondering if its my setup thats wrong, and should i go to the service menu to sort it. Or maybe my scar lead is poo. Help is very much appreciated.

    Graininess on digital? Dont you mean blockiness or pixellation. On a 44" TV I imagine you will see alot of digital pixellation and blocks due to rubbish bit rates of the digital channels.

    -Make the picture softer.
    -Sit further back
    -Buy a smaller TV ;)

    Unfortunately there isn't much that can be done.

    RPTVs are going to highlight the limitations of regular aerial and satellite broadcasts, and you'll notice much more how the weather affects this (especially with the prolonged dry spell recently). A component or RGB DVD feed will still knock your socks of. Occupational hazard of RPTVs I'm afriad, but well worth it when it comes to playing shiny discs.

    I too have a KP44 PS2, make sure you have set the TV up correctly. You really require a disk like AVIA. Depending on where you are in the country I may be able to help. Brightness contrast and sharpness needs to be adjusted and also SVM needs to be switched off IMHO. I have SKY digital with max signal strength and almost max quality and Shrek last night was as good as DVD!!!!!!!!!!!! Even the low bitrate channels look reasonable. Compared to my old Philips Pixelplus this TV handles all signal sources so much better. LL do you also have a sound system for your TV as I might be able to help there as well!!

    Regards
