    I bought a 32" Panasonic Tau pureflat TV a few months ago. I have all of my equipment running through the s-video switcher on my Sony STR-DA555ES receiver.

    The problem is that the picture with s-video is so much better than standard cables that the digital artifact during prime time (HD signals) makes everything look terrible.

    I switched back to standard cable and the picture is so much darker and less crisp that it annoyed me so I had to go back to the s-video.

    Is there a way to fix this problem? Other than buying a HDTV. I couldn't talk my wife into the HDTV when I went TV shopping.

    Well, then you aren't watching HD broadcasts if you don't have an HDTV and/or a set top box

    Do you have digital cable? If so, there's your problem. Personally I've found digital cable to be horrific

    I have a 27" Sony Vega connected to Direct TV and I experience alot of digital artifacts like you have described. The picture is fantastic when watching dvd's. I have tried everything to correct this (including replace the cable from dish to tv) but there has been no improvement. This seems to be a problem with Direct TV
