Question about Flat Panel Televisions

1 Answer

Poor picture quality

Picture pixellates, especially when fast action, eg watching football, creating a blurring round the players and generally losing definition making it difficult to watch. Is this a common problem?

Why panasonic viera picture quality all blurred

If you are driving it from a laptop, and both the laptop screen and TV are on at the same time then the laptop will be sending a blurred picture to the TV.

Toggle the laptop's picture output so that only the TV is displaying an image.

How does it help to have a Full HD LCD TV?

Hi - welcome to Fixya,

There is no advantage in buying a Full HD (1080p) TV if you are only using it for watching TV. Currently, there are no Full HD television broadcasts and there are no plans to introduce any. All UK HD channels currently broadcast in 720p resolution whether they are on Sky, Freeview, or Freesat. Therefore, any TV that is described as 'HD ready' rather than 'Full HD' will display all HD channels at maximum quality or resolution.

The advantage of Full HD is when using them with Blu-ray DVD players, gaming systems, e.g. Sony Playstation, or for playback of media files from your PC. These systems output at 1080p / Full HD (but only when connected with an HDMi cable) and you would need a full HD TV in order to get the best quality / resolution from these systems. However, you don't need a Full HD TV to connect these devices as they can all display their output on a 720p HD Ready TV.

The main disadvantage of any HDTV (1080 or 720) is when watching standard definition (SD) broadcasts. Full HD TVs have 1080 horizontal display lines, but SD broadcasts only have 540 horizontal lines. When watching SD channels on an HD TV, the other 540 lines, i,e half of the picture, are being created by software within the TV - known as 'Upscaling'. Upscaling requires processing by the TV which takes time and fast motion can seem blurred or blocky/pixellated as a result. Higher end TVs have faster response times (0.5ms or less) which minimises the pixellation so this specification is important when selecting an HD TV for purchase.

Hope this helps.

Watching a football game picture is very unclear

The noise reduction option will cause a blur on fast movement. Also, you probably already know this, but a standard definition broadcast will look very blurry on an HD TV, so make sure the channel you're watching is actually an HD channel.

Oh, wow, I just noticed that this is from October. Oh well, maybe you're still having problems.

Moving objects extremely blurry in SAMSUNG LCD-football, golf,etc

This is a problem that will pretty much just be there on this TV. I know it has an awesome long as nothing moves. You can try putting it in "Game Mode" in the user menu and that usually takes care of it but you didn't buy the 120/240 Hz tv to watch it in 60Hz. I would say exchange it, and in my opinion buy a good plasma :)

Your problem is a combination of calibration of your TV and signal strength of your Dish system. Proper color calibration will remove the motion blur and SD issues in the average home. If you continue to have poor quality on your dish system after calibration, then Dish needs to check your signal strengths again. (AND fix it.)

40" Sony BRAVIA KDL-40S2010 LCD HD TV

what kind of cables are you using? Make sure you get the HDMI cables. Also, the S and V Sony series only have a refresh rate of 60Hz, which means that when you get fast action scenes or when people are moving, you will see a very noticeable blur. There really is nothing you can do about this. I had a V series and immediately returned for a W series, which has a refresh rate of 120 Hz. Sometimes, you can still see the pixelation, especially if the TV can't handle the response time, but it is definitely less noticeable than the other series.

Pixel Problems

Yes, first of all are you watching digital or HD. Because in digital you will get pixels visible cos its not coming from a HD source. Secondly if the pixels are really really big, then the TVs just crap.
