    ASK Direct have just replaced my 1.3 TV with a brand new 2.2 version. Obvious differences I've noticed so far:

    1. VGA-Component male-to-male lead included in box. Component connectors are correctly coloured red/green/blue.

    2. Two addendums to the manual. One regarding Ambilight the other regarding DVI connectivity

    3. Different rubber feet for stand.

    4. Contrast seems to be calibrated differently. Constrast settings below ~60 are unwatchably dark.

    5. An option called 'Movie Plus' alongside 'Pixel Plus' and 'Progressive Scan'. Might have been there before but I didn't notice it.

    6. Menus seem more responsive (but that might just be my imagination)

    I asked for a replacement because the signal kept cutting out when playings DVDs through the DVI connection. Haven't watched a complete movie yet so don't know if this is fixed.

    The Movie Plus feature is present in the v2.1. The Properly coloured connectors is different from the v2.1 however. Thank goodness...

    Hi Diamara,
    What does the addendum say regarding Ambilight? Any major changes, or is it a 'cover Philips's Backside' note that it buzzes when used? I ask, as mine is being delivered on Saturday, and I'm not as excited as I should be after all the threads about buzzing, dead pixels etc that seemed to start the day after I ordered my set :rolleyes:
