I am using an X-Box as my DVD player and using an A/R S-video cable to the 525. Also a new Liberty S-video cable to the TV which is a Toshiba 36". I didn't expect to have this problem on a 36" TV. If it was a larger TV I could understand why the signal loss would be more visible. The Liberty cable is brand new. The older Acoustic Research cable is a mid-priced cable from Best Buy I've been using from the start. When I was going from the X-Box direct to the TV with this cable the picture was amazing! Is this normal? Could it be my new Liberty cable? In the past I've used several of their audio cables with good success.
