Liteon 1105HC+ Picture Quality

Just purchased one of these to replace my knackered 5006 and am very disappointed with the picture quality. It seems very ‘washed out’ and too bright in places. For example any Sky on screen logos seem to ‘bleed’ terribly. [Connection is standard Sky+/TV arrangement - nothing complex.]

Have tried a number of SCART leads as well as the supplied red/yellw/white leads - upgraded firmware etc.

Is this common or should I just send it back?

Any tips appreciated!

If you have a VCR, you can connect the recorder to the TV through the VCR and use its tuner.
