    I've just had my new Viera delivered (& love it) but in the box was a bag full of plastic cylinders sliced along the side to open them up with a magnet in them i think!? Might be a stupid question but what do i do with them, there's not much in the manual other than how to fit them, not where?? I'm guessing they are to fit on leads because there's already one on the power lead but which ones and what are they for?? Thanks...

    From my HiFi days I think they are ferrite rings designed to prevent interference (buzz and hum) induced through cables connected to the Viera. I have used all of them on my Viera connectors.

    It doesn't say in the manual what they're for either.. as in why you should use them. My guess was for shielding also. Don't think I'll be able to get them on my IXOS flat SCARTs though. ;)

    Brackenlamb,
    still think you should try to get a digital sound connection from sky+ to amp.
    Some of the movies are 5.1 sound. I can't do that with my old skybox.

    I can only assume if you have no problems then don't use them... if you are getting interference or hum then try placing these by the end of the cables....

    I also assume it's better to try and keep power cables away from signal cables anyway (any hi-fi mag or expert will tell you to keep these apart as much as possible)... and I think I even read that you should cross them at 90 if they need to cross (but not sure why so don't shoot me)

    I seem to remember from A level physics, a while ago mind you, that electromagnetic waves are generated around the cables (like a coil around cable) so by crossing 90 degrees the two electromagnetic waves are not intensified and coiling in the same direction.
