Just aquired this yesterday, after seeing rave reviews on the 575a. Got it home plugged it in to my my newly aquired 42" 7200 via the QED leads i also bought..... Terrible. For starters it whirs always, so much you can here it whilst watching stuff. But via component, it was bad, skin tones were yellowish and blocky, and there was digital noise around everything, small writing being really bad. Switched to RGB through free scart i was using before, and things improved.... marginally. So, it's going back, i'm sticking with the 4 year old Aiwa and cheap scart through RGB, way better! What should i expect to look at buying to gain an improvement? I got this as a stop gap to gain component video till HD DVD arrives. should i look at the second hand market? Needless to say, i just bought the plasma, i've not got much cash. And it is component much better?
