    Hi!

    My first post here. I've just taken delivery of a Loewe Mimo 28, and very nice it is too!

    I encountered an odd problem during set-up though. To give you the background, I have a DVD player outputting S-video via an S-video cable and a SCART adaptor plug (SCART output not available), and a Sky decoder outputting SCART RGB.

    No matter what I do, the TV's auto-connection wizard refuses to let me hook the DVD player up to AV1. It selects AV2, which is the only RGB input, and I need that for Sky!

    To get it to work, the TV thinks the DVD player is a VCR (And hence lets me use AV1), and that the Sky decoder is a DVD player.

    It all works and it's accepting the correct signals (RGB for Sky, S-video for DVD), but it doesn't feel right.

    Any ideas?

    The TV doesn't know the different between a DVD and a VCR signal. If you're worried, select the "AV equipment" generic option.
