I recently have gotten HD on my local cable provider. There is only one provider here in Alaska, and it really is the only viable HD solution in Alaska.

With that said, I really have no other option to obtain HD programming.

DOwnstairs I have a 5 year old 56" Panasonic rear-projection that is 1080i, but, when the TV is viewed in high def, on certian programs, mainly movies, things with fast action camera work, such as flames on explosions, etc.. etc...

I get pixelation on the TV in those areas, and i'm curious as to why this is happening. I am going to try HD on my LG LCD we have in my bedroom and see if I can duplicate it, but.. Until that time, if anyone has any answers, or solutions, or insight, I would appreciate it.

Thanks in advance!

Well, since it is pixelation, that doesn't sound like motion lag or motion blur which happens when the camera is moved very quickly. This sounds more like compression artifacts from your cable provider.

Maybe somone else can explain what compression artifacts are.
