    Yes, it should do. Widescreen switching is carried in the scart. I'm familiar with your TV, but not with Sky digiboxes though.

    There shouldn't be any problems... I connected up a friends TV - the same model but in 32" size and it autoswitched nicely.

    The good thing is that you can view 4/3 in any mode you like, such as 4/3 (best IMO) Smart stretch-o-vision, 14/9 etc and when you select a digital channel that's broadcasting true 16/9 anamorphic widescreen (BBC News24 for example) the TV goes to the correct 16/9 'wide' mode.... when you go back to a non ' true 16/9' broadcast it goes back to your previously selected viewing mode.

    Most Sony widescreens seem to work in this manner. Another nice touch with most Sony widescreens is that you can alter the picture geometry (a service setup, not a normal consumer adjustment) and it can be varied for the different aspect ratios... so if the 4/3 mode needs a tweak then you can alter it but the alterations don't affect the other modes... handy for tweaking freaks. ;)

    I'm most impressed with my KV28FX20, the predecessor to this TV. Excellent pictures and reasonable sound quality for a 50Hz TV.

    The FX and LS sets are not related. Two separate product ranges ;)

    Wow a fast reply!

    and of course you're right..... they're not the same chassis at all..... and the LS has RGB centering I believe... most handy!

    I couldn't live without it now! 2 RGB scarts on the LS60 and it remembers the RGB shift value for each scart separately :smoke:
