    Watched Van Helsing via HDMI & just wanna say YES YES YES YES

    Absolutely crystal, not a single pixel out of place through the whole film. I made a point of looking out for any glitches especially in dark scenes & there wasnt a murmour to be seen

    I will kiss it goodnight when I go to bed :devil:

    Im really pleased for you,

    That really gives me some smiles tonight. I havent received my S97 today, so hoping it will arrive on Thursday.
    Had sky round today to supposedly fit SKY+, only to get told by engineer he cant do it as my dish is on the chimney and he was not a special heights engineer.

    GITS at sky didnt wanna know, and only gave me the 1st Feb. So there was me well ****** off,having moved furniture and wot not to make the install easier.

    What is sky becoming like ,,, eyh.Try explaining that to a 3 year old that she is not getting her multiroom and own remote control to channel flick the kiddies programmes. Poor mite nearly cried..............

    Ah well , patience is of virtue.

    Thats a shame Maidstone, you should of got him to leave SKY+ box & fitted it yourself. I'll be geeting one off ebay soon & have already run the feeds, need to get rid of the damn VCR although saying that, pic on VCR is as good as SKY feed so cant grumble too much

    Hope little one gets her SKY soon bud

Paid for the 24hr del, so hope it comes on or before friday, god, fridays goin to be a big day in my house. Also i chipped me xbox today, so i can play NTSC stuff (not copies). I am planing to get this to NTSC(the xbox output) some how, odered the hidef kit, and plan to use componant with the tosh. I take it thats the best way? Also, which is the best scart no: for sky on the back of the tosh?

    Del, I too have got my xbox modded & Hi Def kit makes it absolutely stunning :0) Make sure to set xbox to Hi Def in MS dash first though & remember that any DVD movies played through xbox are only encoded in 480 NOT 720 or 1080 like the games

    Connect SKY to AV1 mate & if you have a VCR connect it to scart 3 & that way you can put onto VCR anything you want - even DVD's if your DVD player has macrovision disabled !

    Del,

    Oh they certainly seem not to be fast, mine was ordered on the 30th, it did not even dispatch till the 3rd, and it comes via a very strange route, Germany via Netherlands and as of 2:26am was sitting in London, hopefully will get it today (fingers crossed)

    Yours I would hope would be somewhat quicker with the next day.

    Dave...

    Will do, but since the Tosh now not turning up till 11th it will feeding a humble Sony 29inch 4:3 TV :),

    was a nice susprise too that it looks like the Sammy comes with a Remote with what looks like Jog/Shuttle on it, missed that from the VHS Deck days

    dbisping: I'm in the same boat as you, i collected my new player yesterday, but the TV doesn't arrive until Tuesday. I was hoping that the new player - with progressive scan and HDMI might clear up the panning blurring - but apparently not, as Phunt has reported in another thread that its made it worse! What a shame :mad:

    Yea i think so Lee, when i got to vid settings now on the MS Dash, i can only choose widescreen etc, no choice for the pal 60, so im hopin that once its plugged into the tosh the choices will be availble....Thks for askin m8
    :smashin:

    Del

    PS, ive used the slayer self install disc, which has put up evo, well loads, really, I also put a 80gig harddrive in, and it also installed it usng the slayer disc. That made life so much easier, after looking at all the posts about upgrading the hard drive i thought it would be a nightmare, but not so. Just to find some HD games now, or will the pal games be ok for now...??

    This blur thing with the tosh, Im hopin mine will be fine, i am a little fussy with kit i buy, but at least if i do have it, i know i wont be on me own, also think, just for a laff, set up vid cam for the afternoon, so u can all watch the build/testing/failiure :oops: Thing is, in the room its going in, it is going to be a little big, well its a 15x15 room but wont fit in the gap where the 36inch is, so it could be fun...

    No Del, thats not right, you must set your box to NTSC via your chosen dash then go to MS dash & in video settings you can then choose the Hi Def settings eg 720 & 1080 (I ticked both)
