    I have my toshiba 36zp38 hooked up to my virgin media via the scart & my dvd player via the component leads.

    my issue is this, when images are moving the screen appears to become distorted, looks like the image is being broken down into small squares.

    when the image is slow moving or still its a great picture but moving images are poor, especially highlighted when watching football etc.

    i've tried it in all the different modes but nothing seems to improve & my old cheap tv seems to make a better job of moving images which cant be right.

    also when watching prog scan dvd's it feels like the image is harsh & almost like you can detect flicker especially on lighter coloured images.

    can anyone help as i bought this tv after reading the reviews & am worried i've not set it up right or worse, somethings wrong?

    Are you sure it's not just poor quality low-bitrate broadcasts on the digital channels from your cable box?

    Prog scan output on this crt did result in some people noticing flicker- I myself used to play my xbox 360 with a 480p output which was fine- In regards to the shabby picture, I would start off by turning off all the processing such as black stretch and put the scan mode as natural to see wether it helps- oh and turn shapness down:)

    I've never used a vbox before, but both sky and cable boxes need to have their video outputs set to rgb to gain the best pq via a scart cable- also make sure the scart is plugged into the rgb enabled scart sockets on your tv which I believe are ext1 and ext2:)

    From the manual of my DVD Recorder/player (Panasonic EH50):

    "Note to owners of progressive compatible PAL system televisions

    If you have a regular television (CRT: cathode ray tube)
    Use component output with progressive “Off”, even if it is progressive compatible, because progressive output can cause some flickering. This is the same for multi system televisions using PAL mode."

    no matter what setting i put the tv on & no matter what i'm watching, heroes mostly of late, the image degrades when things moves across the screen.

    barely perceptible but its like the image gets broken into small boxes like its pixilating or something.

    This is nothing to do with the TV, it's just how digital broadcasts are in this country as the picture is over-compressed. Nothing you can do about it, and you'll see it on any TV.
