    What exact model TV is it and what DVD player,All have different settings in the menus,

    £25! I bought one off ebay for a couple of quid the other day ;-)

    hope you can get it sorted

    Have you just changed the dvd to tv connection from scart to HDMI? If so instead of your tv doing the upscaling of the image your dvd player if you set at 1080p or 720p and unless you have a good up scaling dvd player (such as a oppo) there will be minimal difference.

    If you brought a Blu-ray player and put a blu-ray disk in that then you should notice a difference bet the blu and dvd. BUt your dvd player will not play blu-ray discs.

    Most people will tell you there is no difference in a cable priced at 99p and £100. Also with upscaling, it is not high definition, only a slightly improved dvd image.

    You will need a blu-ray player, if you want to play blu-rays.

    Also - Set your picture size to 16:9

    blu ray discs wont work if you have no blu ray player

    Take the cable back, seriously £25 is mental. Some people can tell the difference, so they say.

    In my opinion, it's digital, it's either on or off, it will work or won't work. A £100 printer cable wouldn't make you're printing any better.

    i thought i'd get a decent one instead of getting one of ebay for a couple of quid thinking it would be better but it doesn't do anything just can't understand why they make these things and there's no difference

    First of all try unplugging your scart lead, then you'll know whether the picture is going by HDMI or scart for sure...

    There is no difference if you are using a

    I call this thread as a windup. The using the HDMI and scart together and putting a blu-ray disc in the DVD player. Either that or the poster is Special Needs.
