    I have a Phillips 32pw6826 & have it connected up to my Sky box through the EXT1 (RGB) scart socket.

    I had a run of the mill scart cable & thought this was why the picture was so bad so went & got an Ixos 126-75AV scart cable that did improve the picture quality but I’m still not happy.

    The main problem seems to be that if im watching a footi match & they have a box in the top corner with the score in, the right hand side of the box is leaning to one side & not straight.

    If I’m just watching BBC1 - 4 through my aerial then the picture is 10 times better.


    Any ideas????

    It sounds like you have geometry problems which only show up clearly when you watch something in 16:9 ratio.
    It's probably a good idea to get an engineer to have a look at the TV. If however, the bend is less than 5mm, then he will probably say it is "within tolerance" and won't do anything!

    If you are feeling confident, a visit to the service menu should improve things somewhat. Do a search on the forum for "Philips Service Menu". Remember to write down all the original settings first!

    Good luck ;)
