Thanks! Its just connected to my panny crt by scart i think. As you may know from the past, connections are a huge weak point for me. Ive not knowingly changed any settings. Just double checked to be sure, and the prob hasnt magically fixed itself. damn. its an irritating time for it, as i was going to upgrade my TV and disk player later in the year or even early next. Thats why i just want a cheap job as ive a number of other bigger budget things to do before then.
