    hi all

    when you choose your external source ie ext 1-3 , side or dvi you have the option of selecting the input source.

    what i want to know is

    i have sky+ on ext 1 and what should the source be set to sat or digital stb and what do the different sources do , if i flick through them you can see slight changes to the picture

    many thanks

    Hi

    I would leave the input type set to "Other". If you change it to something like Digitial STB then the TV tries to be clever and set the picture configuration to what it thinks is correct. This could be "Soft", "Multimedia" etc. I thought this was a pain in the bum so did not use it.

    Hope that helps

    Hi

    I leave all my inputs set to "Other". This ensures you get your personal picture settings for all inputs.

    One other thing I have noticed is how the Pixel Plus switching works. If you set the TV to Progressive Scan then this is the setting for all inputs (including DVI-I). If you then decide to use Movie Plus for the normal TV channels and then you switch to the DVI-I input - it goes into Pixel Plus 2 mode.

    Good luck

    Dave
