Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

My new Samsung LE32R88BD was showing a pixellated picture on movement, but it filled the entire screen. Since switching my Virgin box through HDMI, the picture is less pixellated but I cant get the picture to fill the screen, there are black bands each side.

I did some reading on the net, try to "calibrate the screen". Try set the input to 1080i, then run the thx optimiser to give you a starting point, then try a bluray with a bright image.

Keep replaying the same chapter and try raising and lowering different settings. you may find that your brightness is set way too high and after dropping it from 90 to 29, you may find that detail will have crept into the image. Try giving the colours a boost as well.

The detail in HD is very subtle, and having a properly calibrated screen will make all the difference. So to answer your question: set your input to 1080i, make sure your HDMI is outputing RGB and start tweaking that screen!

If by regular cables you are talking about the standard red/yellow/white composite cables, then, yes, it will affect HD as composite cannot send an HD signal. Only HDMI and component (red/blue/green video only) cables.

Change to HDMI and let us know if it works for you.

If you are not connected to HD, pixelation can easily occur, especially if you are using an analogue connection. Here is a list, from best to worst, of how you should connect the video on your system.

1) BEST - HDI cable between the TV HDMI in and the sky box HDMI out. This is a full bandwidth digital audio and video connection.

2) BETTER - S-Video between your TV and sky box (with L & R audio)

3) GOOD - Component Video with L & R audio

4) STANDARD - single video cable (yellow) along with L & R audio

5) standard coax

These are listed, as stated, from best to worst quality. If you are not using a digital connection (HDMI), then pixelation can be expected.

Picture problems


Hi,

The pixelation is probably caused by MPEG2 compression on the DVD and Virgin media video streams, the blur is probably caused becasue you are displaying a standard definition signal on a high definition TV.

However if a high-def source still has these problems then you may have a faulty TV, your best bet is too hook up a high-def source such as a HD/Blu-ray player or PS3/360 games console.

Should a high-def source look ok, then you may have some look changing the display settings on the TV to try and improve picture sharpness and color balance.

Thanks.
