    I just bought a Toshiba 65H81. I love the set but have a question. On some anamorphic discs, the picture is not as crisp as I was expecting. I am using the S Video connector from my DVD player and I see some grainy edges within the picture. Is there anything I should be doing to improve the picture or are my expectations for a crisp picture (that I had with my 32 inch TV) too high?

    Thanks.

    Neil

    With an HD ready set take a look at upgrading to a progressive scan DVD player....

    Neil,

    If your DVD player has component outputs then I recommend using those instead of the S-video, this will help out with your picture. Another thing you can do is select movie mode on the TV and then adjust the settings how you like them. I recommend keeping the contrast below 50. Get your self a copy of AVIA or Video Essentials. These DVD's will help you calibrate your TV's picture, these DVD's do make a difference in picture quality. There are a lot of things you can do to improve your picture and getting a progressive DVD player will help, you might also want to look into a good quality line conditioner, this reducess a lot of the noise. Good luck.
