Hi all

Just picked up an RU980 in great condition.

My config file works perfectly however the screens viewing angle seems to wash out quite a lot unless you are looking directly down at the remote

eg: if you point it in front of you the quality of the image on the screen becomes less clear & whiter.

Just wondered if it might have a bit of a problem or whether that's just as good as the screens were in 2006.

Had an ru950 before and never really noticed anything like this.

Any opinions more than welcome


I don't even need it but now I know I can have it i'll make the thing work if it kills me :)

The wash-out on B&W remotes is more prevalent than on color ones. But it has been a very long time since I saw a TSU3000.

I powered up my old RC5000i this past weekend and could not believe what I used to think acceptable.

I have an old RU980 and the colour screen is very good and visible from most angles so happy with it i have tracked down a new old stock one in a box and hopefully will have that by the end of the week. My first one years ago was a black and white and that one would wash out very quickly but this colour 980 version is i find very good indeed.
