    Hey,

    We just bought a new Samsung Series 6 LCD TV. We have Virgin Media TV.

    I was disappointed when my dad said he'd bought a ("gold plated") SCART cable for the new LCD TV. I told him that new LCD TVs need the HDMI cable. We later looked at the VM box and found it didn't have a HDMI port.

    The picture is bad, I'm guessing because it's just the same picture we had on the old CTR TV, but stretched? Seems that way.

    Do we have to upgrade to V+ in order to get a better picture?

    I haven't had a look at the settings on the VM, will do tomorrow, maybe I need to change something on that?

    Chris

    You do need to upgrade to V+ and use an HDMI cable for the best picture quality. You should receive a cable with the V+ system.:thumbsup:
