    Hi all, newbie here :)

    Just a quicky,
    Just bought a 42" Panny Viera (gonna arrive tomorrow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
    One thing I am a bit confused about though is the fact that as i am on Digital Cable already & the Panny has a digital tuner - will I need to make any adjustments etc?

    ta,
    bobi.

    Bobi,
    The Viera has built in freeview tuner. You can connect your cable to the TV in a number of ways RGB Scart will most likely be the best option

    I know that some Cable users dont have a regular arial and freeview isnt carried on a cable ariel.

    If you have a normal twig arial I'd plug it in and see what reception you get. You dont have you use the tuner at all put you get better reception than the analogue one!

    Bobi,
    You can watch your new viera in 3 modes.
    Firstly in AV mode using devices such as dvd and your cable box connected to the AV inputs on the back of the set.I agree, connect the cable box via rgb scart.
    Secondly, in TV mode with signals coming in from a roof aerial . TV mode itself is then switchable between analogue terrestrial and digital terrestrial. If your roof aerial is ok and the service is available in your are you should get around 30 freeview channels.
    You can switch between all 3 on the remote.
    You might want to get the freeview working simply in order to have something to watch whilst you record from cable, or vice versa.
