I recently ( 2 weeks ago ) purchased a Hitachi 53" HDTV 16:9 monitor model # 53UWX10B . I also purchased a Sony progressive scan DVD player model # DVP-NS700P. I have them connected w/ a Monster Video 3 component cable. I even bought the Avia calibration disc to fine tune the picture.I am just not satisfied at all with the picture quality while viewing dvds. I notice significant grain or snow mostly during dark /night scenes.I also find the images too dark when calibrated w/Avia ( I had to go back & brighten the picture myself )but this grainy picture really bothers me. I dont find that the image is sharp at all either, in fact I find that the outlines of people's faces to be blurry.This is my first experience w/ a 16: 9 HDTV monitor & prog. dvd player.I am trying to learn as much as possible from these boards .Its very possible that I'm leaving something out ....I used Avia for the basic video adjustments only.I also notice small bars that move quickly up the screen while a dvd is playing , sems to be from the Sony player( very faint small bars , but I see them & it drives me nuts. Please give me some advice on whether or not I'm doing something or is the Hitachi monitor a piece of crap.Please Help!!
