    Just ordered this set and I neglected to ask if it produces a PAL 60 signal for my Gamecube & Xbox.

    Anyone here have a console connected to theirs?

    Also I have read reports of a moire effect in NTSC mode - is this true?

    I have just been in to Seven Oaks and cancelled the order after reading about the moire effect on viewing NTSC material. I am really fussy and I know that I just could not live with this.

    Is there ANY decent CRT TV sets out there?
    Looks like it's the plasma route then...
    God only knows what mishaps await me there...

    :(

    I have a NTSC PS2, Xbox, Saturn and DC all running on a Loewe Aconda just fine.
    There no problems with PAL 60 stuff on the Xbox. The consoles look great on this TV, although all the processing in the world cannot do much for the PS2's poor output.

    I also have a fair amount of NTSC DVD's and Laserdiscs and the only time I have ever seen the moire is while watching 'The Matrix'

    And that was very briefly at a couple of scenes with dark edges. It's not a problem I've managed to reproduce with other films or games.

    I would ask Sevenoaks to demo the TV with The Matrix DVD and see how you get on.

    I agree with CMcK. I've rarely noticed the moire problem and haven't even attempted to fix it. If you search on here you'll find a post from groundy which offers a fix for the problem. It makes the moire unnoticable from sensible distances.
    This is basically the only issue you will find with the current Loewe sets. With the other manufactures you are much more likely to find one or more problems which may annoy you to a greater degree.

    Ok, you win! I've re-ordered the set.
    Fingers crossed that it's all OK.
    It arrives on Friday.

    :eek:

    I have a new Aventos and its absolutely fine (IMO of course) for region 1 DVDs. In fact I was watching one today and it was glorious. Overall I'm very, very pleased.

    I had a slight geometry problem which, with the help of Groundy, I've managed to virtually eliminate, and beyond that there are no defects whatsoever.
