Replacement V+ Box Picture either will not fit screen, or is distorted

We have just set up a new V+ Box and cannot get a picture to fit our tv screen, or if it does it is distorted - having tried all our tv's 'aspect' options.

 

There was no similar problem with the previous V+ Box this one has replaced; nor is there a similar problem with the picture received via an ordinary arial.

 

Very annoying!

 

Any suggestions for sorting this please?

 

David

What connection are you using (HDMI / Scart)?

Also, if you let us know the TV model we can try to help.

Hi

 

It is a scart connection, and the tv model is a Panasonic 'Vierra' model TX-L32DT30B model

Why are you using a scart connection when that model of TV has an HDMI input?

 

Get an HDMI lead and use that instead

It's likely to be a Scart issue. As dannylau says, use HDMI and let the V+ talk to your TV to get the best picture.

Re: Replacement V+ Box Picture either will not fit screen, or is distorted

Thank you.

 

No HDMI cable was included so am using the Scart until it comes.

 

We do route it through a VCR/DVD player at the moment so I wonder if that is affecting it [although no different than before]

 

Hopefully when the HDMI cable arrives it will be sorted.
