Before I start, I know some people will say it's my fault for being a cheapskate but i'm looking for some advice for my problem. I bought a sumvision phoenix upscaling player and hdmi lead from a reputable online retailer. Yes it was cheap. I have tried all the settings possible and different setting on my samsung 40" lcd panel and i can't get even close to a decent picture. The picture quality is worse than a worn VHS tape at the moment and unless i've missed something, i think i have tried all the settings. All i can conclude is that either the unit is so poor that it's not fit for purpose or the unit or cable is faulty. would appreciate any input/advice on this matter especially from anyone else who has the same player.
