Just got my first RPTV, a Sony KP-57WS510, and am currently watching alot of SDTV from both Antenna and Satelite. I've noticed when I'm watching a Football Game in SD that the close up shots looks pretty nice, not close to a DVD but pretty good. When they pan back to see both sides of the ball prior to the snap the quality is pretty ugly. I realize its not going to look near as good as my old 35" direct view did due to the size difference and the Wide/Zoom stretching it but I didn't expect this much difference. I do some 35mm photography and the focus on any wide angle shot is much less critical and so much more likely to be in focus. Even watching a DVD in progressive mode, the Close ups are awesome but the wide shots are not nearly so good. Why are the wide shots so poor in comparison to the the Closeups? Thanks.
