    Coarse pixellation depends on the quality of the electronics in the TV set (or projector), the quality of the electronics in the DVD player or HDTV/satellite tuner box, and the quality of the program source.

    You'll have to describe this "pixel thing" more.

    It sounds as if you're describing digital compression, which would be more apparent at scene changes. I notice this locally on a cable feed of MTV2 especially, it drives me nuts, even on my VERY small like 24in TV. This isn't pixels. You'll have to describe what source you were viewing, as pixels stay the same on digital displays, and while certain video, like bright even scenes (white, skies, etc) let you see them clearly, they don't change or anything between scenes at all.
