Just got a Hitachi 50V500 LCD projection TV along with a Denon 683DVD home theater setup. I am connected to Dish Network with a DishNetwork 500 receiver. I hooked the receiver directly to the TV via Svideo (there is no component out connection) The picture is grainy, motteled, and I see many artifacts...looks like compression. I yutzed (technical term) with the tv for hours, but am still not happy. I plugged in the Denon DVD via component video, and I was blown away. Picture jumped right off the screen! Tremendous color and quality! I did not even use the 683 receiver as yet. What's it going to take to get my satelite picture to do the same. Right now, I'm not so much worried about HDTV as just getting a good SD picture. TV does not look like the issue...it's amazing when it works correctly.
