    Quote: "Send high quality RGB signals directly to your main TV "

    No it bloody doesn't. Their customer service says:

    With regards to your query we can advise that the SBCVL1200 does not
    accept RGB input. The specification sheets of the unit does clearly
    state this.


    No it bloody doesn't, it says the opposite. And nowhere in the manual does it say RGB is not supported.

    Bloody furious, any advice?

    If the leaflets/packaging/instructions clearly state that it can do something and it can't then your local trading standards office are the people to speak to.

    Yeah, I fully intend to. The website clearly states what I quoted above. I'll wait and see what they say to it first but I've every intention of contacting trading standards if the next reply is as glib.

    Unfortunately the Advertising Standards Authority don't have any jurisdiction over web site content, so you can't complain to them. All you can do is to demand a refund under the Sale of Goods Act.

    Wouldn't happen to me - I would never buy Philips in the first place :thumbsdow

    Well it was one of the more expensive ones I saw so figured it would be OK, and I saw a thread on this forum with someone saying how great the picture is :( Neglected to mention it's only impressive on the second TV, not what it does if you attempt to leave it permanently plugged into the main set up.
