Swisstec 15" LCD Integrated TV

A warning to others who may consider purchasing this set. (I purchased mine from Currys.)

Having read the manual and fiddled with the controls, I came to the conclusion I could not adjust the brightness, contrast or colour of the digital broadcast picture. OK on all other inputs.

I've queried this with the service helpline via email and they confirm today that this is indeed the case!

The reply was prompt and helpful. There is now a software upgrade available to offer these features and they will collect the set and return following the upgrade at their expense.

But I am staggered that a manufacturer can produce a TV in the first place without such basic adjustments being available.

The set was an emergency purchase 2 weeks ago whilst on holiday and I'm in two minds whether to reject the set as unfit for purpose.

I took up the service agents offer and the TV was picked up Monday morning by DHL and returned to them.

I received the set back on Wednesday morning with updated software installed and there is now full functionality on digital broadcasts.

A good performance by both the service agent and DHL.
