    I have a new JVC AV-34WP84 directview hooked to S-Atlantic 3250hd cable box, when I watch HD programming I notice what I would call heat waves, or areas of screen trying to focus .I really notice it when viewing motion scenes such as a flock of birds flying or heard of zebras off in the distance moving.I do not notice it with still pictures. I can see it when I am very close to TV say 2 to 3 feet, any futher and I dont notice it. Other than that the picture is stunning and has that WOW effect. Please tell me its a bandwidth problem with the cable company and not my new TV?? I have read other post and it sounds like compression, but want to be sure. Opinions needed Thanks

    Well, these seem like normal artifacts associated with video-based programming (which, by default, cannot benefit from 2:3 pulldown correction). Since you can only see it when sitting two or three feet from the screen I wouldn't worry about it. Go back to enjoying that "wow effect" that gets you going!

    Thanks for the responce Jack, I tried a DVD today and it doesnt seem to make vapors. There is a feature on the TV called Digital Noise Clear with Off,Low and high setting that really helps, but I lose detail. I just wanted to make sure I didnt have problems with this new TV. Thanks

    James, I'd avoid any of that Mickey Mouse, proprietary "compensation" circuitry as it only adds artifacting (instead of removing it).
