    Hello, I recently purchased this TV from PC World on one of their special offers:

    http://www.savastore.com/productinf...store&product_id=10282673&pid=204&rstrat=7421


    The picture quality is not great in my view but the worst thing about it is the colour and difference between the dark and light. For instance, on a yellow background you cannot pick out anything white atall.

    I have tried fidgeting around with all the settings and I still can't get anything near what it should be.

    If there is anyone here with one could you post your settings?


    It is connected to the TF-100GB Pioneer Freeview box. I know that it is an old aerial connecting the wall with the freeview box but I am not getting the squarey interference that halts the picture, it is just poor picture and colour.

    So my questions:


    1) Is it the LCD TV Itself which is the problem, or is it the cable, or the Freeview box?

    2) It has no scart socket, but it has the 3 cable which goes into the TV which is a scart at the other end and plugs into the freeview box, would I be able to get a scart splitter and plug a DVD in at the same time as a freeview box?

    3) If it is the TV, can anyone suggest a GOOD LCD TV in the 17"-20" Range for around the £250 limit?


    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Hello, Just an update.

    I connected the TV/Monitor to my Computer and played a few DVD's, played Battlefield 2 on Full settings at 1280 x 1024. It ran flawlessly and I couldn't tell the difference between that and my DVI LCD monitor.


    But when I connect it to the aerial, the picture isn't really very clear, it is kind of grainy/squarey. But the worst thing is the colours, contrast and brightness.

    Is this the same throughout the LCD Range or is it just my TV?
