Just recently bought a new HDTV: Prima 1080i progressive scan.. not sure what the model number it is. and a new DVD player: Toshiba SD-4980 720p/1080i Up-Conversion with HDMI. Now my question/problem pertains to the whole up-conversion thing. In order to enjoy high def with my dvd player I found out I have to use a HDMI cord. So I bought one and I hooked it up. I must say that I can see a noticable difference in the colors. But I can see that things are blurry.. it seems that the farther away an object is the more blurred it becomes. Objects that are close seem fine. I think that may sound a little confusing so ill give ya an example. I was watching Kill Bill vol1 to test everything out and if there was say a close up of Uma Therman it would be fine. However if it looked like she was standing far away in the shot, say with her sword in hand, there are no straight edges or curved edges. Everything is distorted by noticable lines going through the image giving it a blurred effect. I dont know how to put it any better than that.. But I'm thinking it would be better to just switch to component video if this isnt fixable. Anyone know whats going on? I dont think my TV accepts 720p which sucks cuz I think that would fix it. Any thoughts would be welcome. Thanks.
