    Hi

    I've recently purchased Sky + with a 42" Hitachi plasma monitor. I connect the two together with a 5m Svideo cable. Some channels are fine but others offer poor quality. Up close images are very sharp but anything in the background seems blury.

    Sky have told me that using the Scart with RGB is a better option. So I'm thinking of buying a £75 box that converts Skart RGB to component and then connecting this to the Plasma.

    Am I going to improve the blury images??

    Many thanks

    Dave

    I use SVHS from my sky+ to my barco projector and the picture is perfect. It does go through a scaler and line doubled.The best plasma pictures i have seen have been through a scaler.

    You have to remember all the channels broadcast at different bitrates so the quality varies a lot, you might simply be seeing a lack of PQ in a low bitrate/high compression channel which is more obvious now you have a large plasma display.
