I recently got a 52" Toshiba DLP and it looks great when showing HDTV, but looks terrible showing anything else, including DVDs. Now, granted, the room I have it in right now is small (I'm having work done on the living room) and I measured it to be 8 feet, 8 inches from where my head is to the screen. I assume that's closer than I should be for this TV. However, once I move it into the living room, it'll be about 11 or maybe 12 feet at most to the TV, and I question whether that is far enough to hide the flaws in the picture! I certainly understand that watching regular TV or a video tape is going to look lousy no matter what size the TV, but if I can't watch a DVD without noticing how awful the picture is, I should probably return the TV and get a different one - a smaller one. Is that far enough for that size of TV? For clarification, I have a progressive DVD changer hooked up to the TV via component cables, and my digital cable is connected via HDMI.
