It seems to me that there maybe a slight problem with the quality of the scart boards installed on the PE30, in general. Although I haven't experienced of the 'non-auto switching' that others have I did have a switching problem between component and Freview on my first set. My replacement set hasn't erradictaed this problem completely, but it's generally fine and I can live with it. However, whilst watching a DVD last night, a different problem arose. I noticed I heard some faint voices and sounds coming through over and above the DVD soundtrack ! Basically the terrestrial channel that the set was previously locked on, either Freeview or analogue continues to come through whilst on an AV channel. It's not 'that' loud but it's enough of a whisper to be very annoying on a dialogue based movie. Not sure if I could live with this problem ! Toying with some of the AV 'out' selections did seem to help but it did not erradicate it completely. Also constantly having to change these selections in order to watch a DVD is not the most ideal thing to have to do. It's not a cable quality issue either, you can in fact have no cables plugged into the set and you will still hear 'crosstalk'. A bit dissapointed with an otherwise excellent bit of kit at the moment. I am now toying with the idea of maybe switching the Viera for a Pioneer 434HDE, though I am loathed to go down the modular route if I have to. Any comments ?
