    My brother has just purchased a Sony KE-P42M1 plasma TV, £2199 from JL which seemed a good deal (inc a free DVD recorder)

    He has an NTL cable box connected via RGB and the picture is appalling, lots of blocking, bluring should this occur? I always imagined that NTL cable was far higher quality than SKY?

    Also most noticable on facial flesh tones are colour banding\shading (similar effect to viewing a hi-res JPG on a non hi-res resolution in windows). It is even visible via the component input from his Sony DVD recorder.

    Is this something peculiar to plasmas, I have a 50" CRT rear projection and although the picture isn't as sharp it doesn't suffer noticably from either.

    Very few people has discussed this model, should it have been avoided?
    :eek: The only review I read gave it 91.5\100 which seems very good???

    Any guidance would be greatly received...

    Hi Steve,
    I bought one of these a few weeks ago and have no problems at all with the picture quality, I think it is excellent, although my sky feed is from a dish not via cable. I asked about it here after ordering it, but got no replies either.
