I'm a little disappointed. I just got my Liberty component video cables yesterday and went to hook them up. Up till now all I've been using is composite connections. So I left the composite cable hooked up and tried a direct comparison with my Episode I DVD. I swear I couldn't tell a difference between the two. On top of that, I was getting some distortion in the picture that looked like horizontal lines. The distortion was not affected by the cable connection. Here is my equipment: Toshiba SD-2150 Dual Tray DVD (christmas gift) Mitsubishi VS-50805 HDTV Upgradeable (on loan from in-laws) Kenwood HTB-504 Surround Sound (purchase based on HTFs high recommendation) So, the sound is great of course. But I have to say that I was disappointed by the picture quality. The TV doubles the lines of the standard 480i and there are two settings. 480p and 960i. The 480p settnig seemed to diminish the distortion slightly. Does anybody have any ideas why it's not crystal clear? Here are my ideas: Option 1: I'm just not used to a 50" screen, and I'm noticing just how bad 480 lines of resolution really is. Option 2: This TV just isn't as good as I think it is. (Although I can't really complain too much because I got it for free.) Option 3: My DVD isn't as good as I think it is. (Although I can't really complain because I got it for free. And I don't really think this is the cause.) Option 4: I just need to get HDTV.
