A good friend of mine senr me the following. I am hoping the fine folks at HTF can assist. Thanks in advance from both of us I recently bought a DELL 19" Wide LCD TV (HD READY) for a pretty good price, as a second TV. I won't be able to hook up HD Cable to it until later this week, but I did hook up my Philips Progressive Scan DVD player up to it. Here is my question/problem: When I am playing a DVD in progressive mode, on this TV I can see "snow" or "grains" in the background, specially when its a solid black or white color. Now, playing the same movie on a Direct View Tube HDTV I dont see the grains, and it looks almost smoother. Is this because the LCD TV is digital, and it'll show imperfections more so than the analog tube TV? I know that DVDs (even in progressive mode) are compressed, and the quality isn't that amazing as HDTV. Since, I've never owned an LCD HDTV before, and I can't test HD until this weekend, I was wondering if you knew, or had any idea. I just wanna make sure I didnt get something crappy. I did check reviews, and everything seemed in order.
