Hi, Thanks for the replies in advance Bought a 435 a few days ago and at first was happy with the performance, BUT the picture via SKY+ is not that great lots of blocking on some channels. I have it hooked up via S-video to scart with s-video selected on the Media receiver and it gives a good picture I have also got it on another input using rgb via scart and it seems to give worse performance than the s-video. When I do a split screen the blacks are much deeper and things are much sharper on svideo than via scart with RGB. I am using good quality cables for each connection, all gold plated and OFC and so on. From what i read on these forums RGB is meant to give a better performance than s-video yet it seems to be worse for me???? Any way to get a better picture on this 435xde is is it going to have to go back and get a PHD7 ?????
