    I'm using the Panny S97 with a Sony Wega Trinitron, and find the colour palette
    isn't not natural enough via SCART RGB. Using a GJ Flat OFC Scart with metal scart housings. Could the lead be to blame?
    TV Tuner and SKY via SCART fine - images look natural.

    As for other connections (for future use):
    Would component render a more natural picture?
    I see HDMI has 3 different colourspace settings, would this affect colour palette when hooked up to a compatible screen?

    No problems with unnatural pallette through component. Have never tried it connected RGB Scart. Have you tried mucking around with the picture settings in the 'User' menu? Also worth checking that the Picture is at 'Normal', and, in the Setup Menu, that you have 'CRT' selected as the display device.

    Hope this helps

    Hi Barzo,

    Picture mode is Normal, and Display type is set for CRT.
    AV Enhancer set to Auto naturalises the image a bit, User Settings I stored are Normal & Cinema1 modes.
    What does the S97 picture mode default to from power on (from standby)?

    Could be because RGB circuit hasn't broken in yet, Richer Sounds were using HDMI.
    How would I find out what firmware I have? : that might make a difference.
