    Hi

    They are ferrite rings used to supress interference. I think they are intended to wrap round a phono or other cable to stop interference. If you are using decent cables, there is no need to use them, as the cable will already be insulated once, twice or more.

    Hope this helps

    But just think you've got your sexy system to play with - no make that two systems - me I have to make do with my two channel Linn system in me home office; our two year old Tweenies mad trainee technician means any thoughts on a good HC system are on hold for the moment; I must be the only legend (HaHa) who has owned plasma display for over five years now and still makes do with a miniature telly at home. (Panasonic LCD at the minute).

    Clamp the ferrite rings around the plasma mains cable - generally one as close to the 13 amp plug top as is feasible. Most often the ferrite beads will have little or no affect on a system but sometimes if the mains in your house is a bit noisy then can help to iron out picture and audible hum. (Mostly we end up not requiring them on installs and there is a big pile of them lying in a box somewhere down at the office).

    I'm hoping one of the more technically minded boys will jump in here and give us a bit of the ferrite core science.

    Best regards

    Hi

    Haven't had a chance yet to use the AVIA disk to calibrate the screen. Its looking pretty damn good as it is! When I do, I'll be sure to help you out.

    As far as watching Sky goes, I don't really watch a lot of anything other than live sport and BBC, ITV, C4. Nearly all of that is 16:9 so there's no probs- just put it in 16:9 mode. For 4:3 stuff I watch it stretched to 16:9 and try to avoid black bars.

    How have you got yours set up? Here's the world exclusive first pic of mine in place (full shots to come on my website in next week or so) :
