Hi, Apologies if this is the wrong forum, but having researched LCD TVs & HD recorders for my mum (she lives in the sticks *& doesn't receive digital nor wanted to shell out for Sky+!) I came up with the above combination....which she duly ordered. I live a few hundred miles away so she had to get someone local to install. I asked her watch she thought of her new setup & she said she's "a little disappointed". It turns out that when she use the Philips it doesn't fill the screen "just a small picture with space around the edges"...from what I can gather Philips HD recorder is attached to the TV via a scart. i reckon there has to be a setting somewhere on either the TV or the Philips HD recorder? Any top tips as to what could be happening here (I'm up there at the weekend). thanks, Pesky.
