    I am getting ALL my HD channels except of espnhd......... For some reason when I put on espnhd I get sound but the picture looks like if I have my componet cables installed wrong. I don't I have checked twice besides all other HD channels come in wonderful.

    ESPN is broadcast in 720p. How do you have the output of your Panny STB set? If you have it set for "native" that means that it will pass 720p in its native format. I'm not familiar with your Samsung set but there are almost no HDTVs outside of front projectors that handle 720p natively. You should switch your Panny STB to 1080i. It's on the front panel of the unit itself.

    Hope this helps.

    Yes I did switch it from Native to Hybrid which converts 720p to 1080i.

    You're quite welcome. HDTV can be very tricky when you're first starting out. Glad you got it working.
