Best picture from Sky SD on LCD TV
From the sounds of it a fairly regular kind of query...
I recently bought a Samsung LE37R87BDX HD Ready LCD and got Sky +. I'm not very impressed with the picture and I'm guessing it'll be a combination of three things:
1. Cheapo SCART lead
2. Settings on the TV
3. Upscaling limitations of the TV from an RGB SCART source
I've played with the settings a bit, set Sky+ to RGB, used RGB SCART input on telly, bought a Philex 26481H SCART cable. Waiting for the cable to arrive, so hopefully should see an improvement.
I have considered buying an upscaling DVD recorder with HDMI, since I a have a naff DVD player anyway and would like to free up space on the Sky+ box, but how likely is the upscaling on the DVDR to be better than the TV, if my budget is £200?
Can there be a better way of connecting my set-up?
Can anyone help me with the TV’s picture settings? I have read Dominic Dawes’s advice post, but still not convinced I’ve got it right, particularly with the set-specific processing features.
I’m sure the picture could be a bit sharper and motion isn’t particularly smooth. I’m basically looking to make the most of my set-up without forking out a fortune…
Any help greatly appreciated!
