ok......I have taken the plunge and bought a Panasonic 42pv500 and having watched a dvd via component I am very impressed. The unit came from John Lewis and they supplied me with a scart cable worth £20 and component leads worth £50. I notice the picture via sky is not so crisp and I wondered if I would be better to invest in something like a Monster scart lead? At the moment I have the TV, Shy Plus and a Panasonic DVD recorder. Also I have read so many posts concerning screen burn and image retention that I am in danger of becoming paranoid about it. I have 3 boys who are football daft and watch sky sports all the time. Is it a good idea to put the screen on a zoom mode to get rid of the logos or is that a problem in itself? Any other points or advice would be very welcome as I am a total newbie to this........thanks in advance.
