I have the Hitachi 36", and DVD pictures are fantastic. We have the Dish network, and I'm not going to get the hi-def decoder until more content is offered, so I'm not expecting real high quality images on the TV. But a lot of the times, especially if the image on the screen is moving fast, it's almost like watching an MPEG-1 video on a 486...a little blockiness, but a lot of lines, and fuzzy, sorta sparkly-shimmering areas among somewhat jagged lettering on occasion. Why would this happen? You would think that the image would at least be a little better than that. And you can REALLY see when local people use really cheap equipment to make their commercials. Thanks!
