    Now that I have shifted back my picture when using RGB via a S*Y Digibox I am well happy, well almost. When I compare the picture on RGB on AV1 with the Pal picture on AV2 I have noticed there is more defenition on the AV2 socket and when going back to RGB the colours are lovely but a loss of defenition is apparent.

    Is this fixable and if so how? Or is it an RGB setting and that is it?

    Many thanks to the person who pointed me in the right direction for getting to the service menu on my Panny, it worked.

    Generally on a well set up TV or monitor, RGB should be miles better than "PAL" - which is probably composite video.

    Don't understand why yours isn't...

    Are you using different quality cables between the two?

    Does your TV store different settings for RGB and S-Video (e.g. sharpness)?

    Thank u for replies. The leads are good ones. When I use the sharpness control on RGB it does nothing but it does on AV2. I will get used to RGB. TV is 7 years old so a new widescreen is on the horizon and will persevere with slight change when switching.

    The colours on RGB are awesome!

    In that case, it could be that you have sharpness set artificially high on AV2 which makes you think you're seeing more definition but in actual fact it's just noise.

    Also, if the leads are good, it may be that one is better than the other. Can you swap them round and see if the quality then swaps on AV1 and AV2?
