    it is your TV and you have to watch it. Please use what suits your eyes and ears. What the specs say are all fine electronically, but that matching may or may not suit your ears and eyes. yes it does make a differene if you use better technology, but ultimately it is you who have tp decide what suits you as the difference may not nne all that discernable. But as you say that the charactwe are not very pleasing if you use a certain cable, well, do not use it irrespective of what the book says.

Unfortunately cable does not give you the best quality picture and "fuzziness ' is the reduced resolution being displayed on the tv.
the easy way to check the picture quality is to get a decent hd antenna and scan using it for free hdtv signals, if these are also fuzzy, on all channels then the tv has a problem but if it is only on a few lower resolution channels then its just the way it is until everyone is hd 720 or better.

No picture on Samsung HP-R5052


Just a couple of things to try:
You say you tried another cable box and a roku. Are you using the same cables? Are you using hdmi, component or coax cables? Could be a bad wire. True high def tv 1080 requires an hdmi cable for the best picture. The next best choice is the component cable. This is a triple cable with red, green, & blue and provides 720 resolution. The least quality is the coax wire which will only provide low def standard quality picture. Sometimes people hook up 1, 2, or all 3 of these choices not knowing what it all means. If thats the case with your tv it may just be a matter of selecting the correct input on your tv with your remote. On your samsung remote there should be a button for input. Try pushing that button and make sure it's set to hdmi or component, whichever your using. If none of this, is it possible the plasma tv itself is defective?

What cables are needed to put tv on wall


Hello Numty,

Dont waste your £££ on gold plated they make no difference the back of your telly will be alley as well as all the things your connecting it to.

If I was you I would case the following cable into the wall. I would definetely put at least one scart in the wall.... this could be used for DVD, Sky, etc... I would run 3 HDMI in the wall... this would future proof you. ie when the cost of Blue ray player, etc come down in price.
playstation, Blue ray, Sky+ HD box etc etc. The last thing you want to do is have to chase the wall again.

There is a tool I saw in Maplin and Screw fix It attaches to a regular drill and is set at an angle. Makes chasing walls a Lot easier.

Hope this has clarified things for you..

Hope you get it sorted out.

Do we need to buy an antenna to get this TV ready for Digital TV?


LCD TV refers to the substance that creates the picture quality (it would be either LCD or Plasma or Tube) and HD refers to a crisp clear picture that can be attained. So your TV is an LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) TV that is capable of receiving and displaying HD (High Definition) Picture.

What you need to check for is whether the TV has a built-in Tuner. This will either be SD (standard definition) TV Tuner or an HD TV Tuner. The box it came in will tell you or you may still have stickers on your TV.

If it has a built-in SD tuner you will be able to pick up HD channels but in a lower quality. In this case you will only need to plug the TV into a Wall-socket antenna or rabbit-ear antenna.

If it has a built-in HD Tuner you will be able to pick up HD Channels in full HD quaility picture. Simply by plugging the TV into a Wall-socket antenna or rabbit-ear antenna.

If your TV does NOT have a built-in TV-Tuner then this TV is clasified as "HD Ready". Which means that you have to purchase a Set Top Box (STB). you can get either HD or SD set top boxes. In this instance you will plug the cable from the wall socket into the STB then from the STB into the TV using either an HDMI cable (as long as your TV has an HDMI input) or through RCA cables which will be coloured Green, Blue and Red (i think red)

By the Way - best picture quality is from a wall-socket antenna.
HDMI = High Definition Multimedia Interface
STB = Set Top Box
High Definiton RCA cables will also be refered to as YPbPr/YCbCr (depending on equipment)
LCD = Liquid Crystal Display (the method used to make the picture on your TV screen)

If you have anymore questions, ask away.

Picture quality for gaming


Match the PS3's output resolution to your TVs (in this case 720p).
Don't sit too close, otherwise you'll start to see individual pixels.
Make sure the HDMI cable is good quality.
As for picture settings, they will very so much according to the viewing conditions that i cannot give you settings that are gauranteed to work for you. But sharpness should always be 0 when dealing with HD content.
If you want to really get the best picture from your TV, try using a THX disc to calibrate it. Luckily these are normally included on Disney PIXAR DVDs, so go find yourself a copy of CARS or something. Follow the instructions of the THX setup, and you should have youself a sweet looking picture in no time.

Hope this Helps.

No HD picture on HD TV


Yes, you need to buy HD station.
But with DVD you can get HD quality without any other station.

I am wondering what the best cable option is to hook up my new Samsung 50" Plasma 720 to my Direct TV HD/DVR Receiver


Your best cable choice is going to be HDMI, but for heaven's sake don't be suckered into paying an enormous amount of money for an HDMI cable. Any good quality cable will work, you don't need a $100 MONSTER cable, because you won't see a difference in picture between the $10 cable and the $100 cable, regardless of what the sales person might tell you

I have a Panasonic Viera 37" plasma TV which is nearly 3yrs old. Picture input is from Sky HD via hdt lead. Most times pic quality is brilliant on both HD and none HD. However I occasionally experience...


This is a fault definately. I have run into this with Samsung plasma tv's and find if you do some electrical adjustments you can usually remedy the situation. Sometimes though, it is the panel going bad or a board. Do u have any pictures i can see? Also keep in mind that if you have a DVM you can make the adjustments yourself. Good luck...GURU JAY
