    I have tried to tweak down the sharpness and contrast and it does help a lot but the picture is still disturbing. Is there anything else I can do or is that it? Are there commonly accepted optimal settings for contrast, brightness, sharpness, etc. for these types of inputs? Again, my set is a Tosh. 43HX70.

    There is no fix for this one. Dish and VCR signals are considered probably the worst sources available for a TV with a line doubler built-in.
    The GIGO (Garbage In Garbage Out) principle applies. You are feeding your TV extremely poor signals and its line doubler is increasing the resolution of that signal. Increasing the resolution is only going to serve to highlight the flaws in the original signal.
    No amount of tweaking will ever get these signals looking anywhere near their DVD and HDTV counterparts.
