    Hi, I have had the above LCD TV for a couple of years. I have been using it's one HDMI input with my V+ box - no problems.

    I recently bought a PS3 so now have two HD sources - I initially bought a component lead for the PS3 but the picture was awful - too bright with ringing etc - I assumed that the component output level from the PS3 was too high.

    Next I got a component lead for the V+ box but find exactly the same probl em here - it looks as if the TV is clipping the component signal at the input stage (ie whites are completely crushed and can't be recovered using the display controls in the menu). I work in TV studios and it is a bit like dealing with an unterminated analogue video signal, although this is unlikely in a domestic TV.

    I have managed to access the service menu but can't see anything useful in there.

    Anyone else had the same problem and got around it? I can see problems of a similar nature with LG TVs in these forums but never seen a resolution. I'd like to avoid an external HDMI switch if I can avoid it.

    Cheers.

    For info, I got a reply from LG

    "This is normally an automated adjustment made in the factory on the production line and it requires a specialist signal generator which we do not have in the UK. It may be cured by replacement of the main signal processing board but the cheaper option would be a commercially available HDMI expander box to give more HDMI inputs."

    Moral of this story..... test everything on your telly on day one! Don't wait a year or so down the line since they can't help you out.
