    Hi All

    I just bought a 20" LCD TV (Relisys).

    Whe I connected it to DVD using Scart Socket the image quality is not brilliant, looks like there are less pixels... when there are some writting on tv programes it shows the edges a bit unsharp, and overall the images are a bit dull (not a lot)...

    So i went to currys and checked some other make 20" LCD TVs and some do look a bit dull, is this usual or only my Screen...

    Does any one have Relisys 20" TV here?? who has this problem...

    Thanks

    David

    Pretty well every 20 inch LCD out there has a very low res panel - 640 x 480. Other sizes (both bigger and, perversely, smaller) are all higher resolution. The downscaling of the incoming TV signal to fit this matrix may account for what you describe.

    In fact some observers consider that this makes this particular screen size look more CRT-like - probably because the coarse pixel grid more closely resembles the coarse shadow mask on CRT TV tubes.

    According to the Relisys website the resolution for the RLT2000 is 800x600.

    David, can I ask you what sort of price did you pay. I'm also looking into getting a 20" LCD for a second bedroom and so far have only seen the Beko that ASDA sell for £279.
