    I own a 32 inch Vitros (6381ZW), and I have to say I am amazed at the picture quality compared to other TVs I have seen, I do have a few questions though:

    (1) Are there separate settings in the service menu for geometry for PAL and NTSC ? PAL geometry is perfect, NTSC there is some slight bowing on the left hand side. Nothing major, but couldn't see why it would be there with a NTSC signal and not a PAL one ?

    (2) With a completely black background on NTSC signal via Scart 3 - RGB, get an almost rainbow bow shaped light patch 1/3 way down from the top of the TV. Not noticeable if you are watching a DVD, but stop it with a black background, and this effect 'appears'. Its almost like a light coming from inside the TV. Definately not there with PAL, could be my source ?

    (3) Whats the difference between DMI and DMM ?

    (4) I read in a review that you could reduce the processing on the third scart for a DVD input, is this someone with the wrong end of the stick, or does the TV do it automatically if you tell it that the third scart has a DVD connected to it.

    Thankyou very much for any help you can give me, have to say the user manual is not the most detailed in the world !

    Best Regards,

    Buckster

    Hi.
    I have a Aconda and had the same problem as you have
    when using Ntsc.
    I gave Loewe a call and a service engineer came and fitted a
    upgraded part.The problem is 95% solved.
    I thought the above problem effected early acondas only.Odd.
    I still have the service engineers number if you require it.
    All the above was free with first class sevice all the way.
    Hope this helps.

    Is the 32inch Aconda 32inch viewing size or 30inch? I have had conflicting reports...

    Hello Silva,

    I have measured my two TV sets and the viewable size of the Aconda screen is 30", and so is my Sony TV set which is refered as 32".

    Yeah. does the Vitros have DMM as well as DMI and what do they do?

    Also is the only difference between the new Acondas Living range (the 9281zw) and the Vitros down to the casing? As I am considering both as a replacement for my 36ZP18P.

    The Loewe website is not that informative is it...
