    Hi
    Quick question which I probably know the answer to alreay but here goes.
    I juss bought an Samsung HLP5063 HDTV and Samsung HD SAT receiver. They talk to each other via DVI. The output on the HD SAT is set to 1080i. The HD Channels off of DirecTV (like ESPN HD, and HD NET) look really nice but channels like OLN and my local channels look very "blocky". I am assuming this is DirecTV and the broadcast/reception of analog channels being converted by the TV and not so much the quality of the TV.

    Is there anything I can do to minize this effect? The analog channels look fine on my Sony 36' WEGA (Tube), but the DLP looks to be exposing the quality of DirecTV broadcasts.

    Can someone give an opinion on this? It would be helpful to put my mind at ease.
    Thanks
    Carlos

    I swear i responded to this post, maybe I'm going nuts. [​IMG]

    Likely, you are just seeing the compression artifacts that are so common on cable, being resolved on a larger screen.
