    There have been a number of questions in this forum about how football looks on an LCD screen. Having just watched the Scotland vs Sweden game on Sky Sports 1 on my new Tosh 32WL48 I thought I'd give you my impressions.

    Brightness levels were high at the start , however these dropped throughout the game and it was quite dull by the end - I thought it was only plasmas that suffered from burn-out.

    Colour settings seemed a bit off with yellow being strong and dark blue looking weak.

    There was a definite lack of sharpness: My picture controls could do nothing to improve Scotland's first touch.

    Similarly the balance controls had no effect and the game got more and more one-sided as it went on. I would say that there was a very high contrast ratio - certainly in the 2nd half.

    There was some discernible background noise throughout - mainly the Scotland fans chanting "sack the board" and "SFA you're having a laugh" and some interference with fans running onto the pitch. I will have a better SCART connection in time for the Scotland vs Italy game so I'll need to see if this improves things.

    The LCD certainly showed up the poor quality input. I know that Sky intend to start broadcasting in high quality by 2006 but this will be far too late to give Scotland a chance to qualify for the World Cup.

    In conclusion, watching Scotland is no better on my new 32" LCD than it was on my old 20" CRT
