    i have just purchased a KP44PX3, i want to connect my davs880 to it. Which way would give me the best quality picture?
    1.s/video....scart 3
    or
    2 s/video....s/video
    the 880 has no scart output, and the tv dose not accept component.,

    thanks in advance

    How do you like your new TV? I have also just bought one ans think the picture is great.

    You are kinda limited unfortunately here. Your only option I would think would be S-Video, though can you not purchase a device that will convert component to RGB? Again I am not too sure.

    I suppose you would achieve the best possible quality with a convertor box
    RGB to component, but i'm not sure if the price warrants the benefit.
    have a look here

    thanks for replys,yes i think the picture is very good,the box looks interesting but what i need is component signal converted to either s/video or to rgb ,i think that box seems to do it the other way.if i just used the s/video out on the davs880,would i get a better quality tv end,by connecting to the s/video imput on the tv,or the scart 3 which takes s/video signal.
    thanks again

    I don't think there would be any real difference. using the scart would keep things neater round the back rather than having to use the side input. Providing you are using a good quality scart cable or a good quality S-video cable with a scart adapter I should imagine that the picture quality should be pretty much the same.

    I don't think there is likely to be any benefit from converting a component output to S-video over using the native S-video output. Converting from one source to another is never going to be as good as using the proper output.

    Out of interest what is a DAVS880?

    well in theory it should, but if possible i would definitely advise to try one before you take the plunge, the gain in quality over S-Video might not be enough to rectify the cost.

    How are you getting on with these sets - I was really interested but after reading the problems people were having with Sony's HQ100 set which also has picture power I was somewhat cautious.

    I went to Powerhouse to view the set, the assistant plugged in a DVD player and on the opening scene on Mission Impossible 2,at the top of the mountain Tom's head had a distinct halo - I don't know which scart he used or format. Either of you experienced any such problem - is the motion compensation OK and what about football - does the grass look like grass.

    If your happy with your sets I may give this another look

    I have just started to notice a problem and would appreciate it if anyone else has seen this. When there is something bright then there is like a smear going from the object left and right out to the edge of the screen. It is most noticible on darker images where there is bright objects. For example wathcing the white credits scroll up a black screen at the end of a film all the text has this ghosting smeared from both sides of it. the smearing is exactly horizontal with the text. I watched a Star Trek movie last night on DVD and it was terrible. Every time the image was dark and there were bright lights or objects the screen was filled with these smears.

    I am not sure if this has always been there or just appeared but it is noticible on all inputs as well as tv and even the sets own icons can show it up.

    Any one else seen this problem on the Sony RPTVs?

    The smearing you describe is mentioned on the Sony smear fix at the top of the forum page but goes on to say that the adjustment is quite crude.

    Have you noticed any haloing around dark objects ie peoples heads who have dark hair against bright backgrounds ?
