I just recently moved my tv from one house to the other. My HD channels don't look as clear as they used to. Also it just started happening the other day, but when I turn on my TV everything is slighlty blurry. After leaving it on for about 30 seconds the picture comes in clear.

Re: 2 new problems with my TV after my move
Well it may just be the signal in your area that isn't quite as good. That's just fact. Also, because the signal may be weaker, it may take longer for the TV to fine tune to get the best picture quality, which would explain the slight blurring after turning your TV on.

You didn't say what model number, but check the setup menu to make sure it is set for cable (if you are using cable) and not AIR. Otherwise let me know the model number and what you are using for signal (cable, satellite, etc.)
To get HD channel form your cable TV without using the cable provider HD tuner box but using your TV Clear QAM tuner (your TV has Clear QAM tuner, my TV also has QAM tuner so I do not have to use the cabel box, but my COMCAST does not provide may Clear QAM signals like they use to) to get the unscrambled HD, the cable provider must provide those unscrambled Clear QAMsignals for your TV to pick up the signalS.

Did you use the correct setup during the tuner setup to scan the availabel cable channel per user manual?
First - connect DVD player preferably to the same input (unless you are using RF connector) and make sure that same issue does happens while you are watching movies. If it does - main board in your TV have to be replaced. If it does not - it still cable signal problem.
The antennas on most TV's are small and so moving the TV to a nee location may have put you in a new place in the house with even less signal. There are TV antenna signal amplifiers you can buy and for $50 or less you should be able to get something half decent that will boost your signal. Are you not getting any channel's now? Because you should still be able to get at least something in the new location. I'm just asking if you're getting any channels in hopes you didn't damage the TV while moving it?
Hi druggist , I recently bought a Samsung SIR TS 160 unit from the Goodwill for $14.99 (no remote though) and I was very sceptical as to whether it would work but I thought what the hell it's only 15 bucks .Anyway to my surprise it works great and I do not and never have subscribed to Direct TV , I don't even have a satellite dish (am using an indoor antenae) and I get about 19 TV channels 10 of which are HDor DTV .Granted occasionally I have to move the antenae around a bit but not much . I also took my box to my friends house and he has a rooftop/outdoor antenae and there were no problems whatsoever .
I doubt Direct TV can deactivate your box in anyway ,especially for off-air programs.
ps my TV does not have a HD tuner either.
