    Do you have your RBG cable split?

    Its darker, because with composite signals, you select a desired brightness, contrast, colour etc. You must have your composite settings higher/brighter than RGB.

    With a RGB signal, you can only adjust brightness.

    nwgarrat, I dont understand. I am receieving RGB signals on my Sony IDTV via RGB scart socket, but I am also able to change the settings for color, contrast and brightness via the Picture Menu Settings. Yet u say Brightness cant be adjusted with RGB?

    Brightness and contrast (got that bit wrong) can be adjusted.

    I have a Sony IDTV (28DX20). When watching digital TV, and press for he menu, colour, sharpness and hue cannot be adjusted.

    I also have a freeview box on RGB and when viewing it on the RGB input (same as DVD's), the same settings cannot be adjusted.

    RGB has always been darker than composite on my TV.

    Maybe your TV is different.
