Hi, I'm using a Panasonic DMR-EX77 DVD Recorder with a Panasonic TX-32PL1 CRT television via high quality RGB Scart. The problem is the contrast of the On Screen Display - it's far too high! It's so high that the OSD actually flickers and looks awful, the TV Guide in particular shows this up and is horrible to look at. I always have the contrast on my TV pretty low anyway (about 1/3 of maximum) but the only way to get the OSD of the EX77 to look anywhere near acceptable is to set the contrast to minimum which of course results in the main picture being too dark and is wrong for my other AV devices such as my Humax PVR. There is no option in the EX77's menu to lower OSD contrast in any way. I'm actually on my second EX77 now as the first had exactly the same problem so I'm guessing it's a generic issue with this model. I'm sure this issue wouldn't be so much of an issue when the EX77 is hooked up to a flat panel display as the the technology used by flat panels would tend to eliminate the flicker of static OSD displays. But I'm perfectly happy with my CRT and can't afford to change it for the time being anyway. I've never had bad results using other devices via RGB Scart, the picture has always been clear, sharp and pleasing on the eye. So I want to ask - has anyone else got their EX77 hooked up to a CRT? Has anyone else experienced anything similar? Because this is just not acceptable to my eyes!
