I recently purchased a Sony KP51WS500 51" WS television from Circuit City along a panasonic 35S progessive scan dvd player. I'm used to viewing movies on my 32" JVC tv (with component video cables). As I undertood it, WS HD Tv's were supposed to have a better "clearer picture"... Well, the picture had digital grain (could see motion in static backgrounds, especially lighter colored backgrounds) in the background when viewing any dvd...even Lord of the Rings, and Fight Club. In American Beauty, at the beginning with the white fence and the zooming in the the town... showed jaggedness especially when panning. I noticed if I turned the sharpness all the way down, the grain went away on dvds such as Lord of the Rings, Spiderman... stayed for lower picture quality movies, but the picture became very blurry if not in a closeup of an actor. Progressive scan was enable on the dvd player and the tv, and I was using Monster component cables... I tried switching out the Panasonic for a more expensive sony dvd player, and the picture got worse. I thought maybe I set it up wrong but the dvd player showed progressive enabled (both places) and the tv was set to progressive/sony cinemotion. Is it normal to see the digital grain (don't know what else to call it) on a WS tv? It made dvds like the Friends sets nearly unwatchable... My 32" JVC has a much cleaner picture... I ended up returning everyting.
