What is your carrier?
What is your carrier?
Hi. I recently switched to DirecTV. HR24 box, fed into a Denon AVR-1909 receiver.
Hmm I can't really tell you why. Maybe try all the settings on default?. I have a 5 year old LCD w direct an older box and all sports look fantastic.
If you really want something in this life, you have to work for it. Now, quiet! The're about to announce the lottery numbers...
Thanks guys. I'm gonna give the Samsung LED-LCD a try, and if I'm unhappy, go plasma.
I can't recommend calibrating your set enough, once you get it. If you don't want to loosen up the purse strings and pay to have someone do it, you can always use a dvd and do it yourself. (Obviously it wont be as good as the guy who brings over the fancy light meters, etc. but it will still help.)
Actually, I just found my Digital Video Essentials DVD, shoot me a pm if you'd like to borrow it to calibrate your tv and see if it makes a difference.
Before I bought the Sharp, I spent a lot of time on the AVS forums reading up, and copied a bunch of calibration recommendations. Also, I endlessly played with the "auto-motion" and "film" settings. I found that the picture is best with both off. I'm just starting to think that the larger the TV, the more "noise" one gets. Anyway, the Samsung will come later this week, so I'll try them side by side before returning one or both. Also, thanks for the offer to borrow the calibration disc, but I already ordered it on Amazon. Appreciate it though. I didn't want to bring in someone since it's so subjective and I'm the kind of guy that will just want to figure out how to do it on my own anyway.
Did you take a look at Panasonic plasmas? Everyone sees things differently, but I found the picture superior to most other similarly priced units.
I would highly recommend any of the Panasonic plasmas, followed by the samsung plasmas 6500 series and up.
Thanks guys, the Samsung LCD came a few days ago and looks incredible. It does not have the problems that the Sharp. Big difference between a native 240hz and Sharp's "240 Automotion" which mimics it. I'll give it a few more weeks (my return period) but it's looking like a keeper. Thanks again for all your advice.
