    Hi

    I have recently watched the TV shows C.S.I and 24 on a progressive player via a Sanyo Z2 projector .

    I´ve noticed a lot of grain ... far from crystal clear PQ.

    So ...

    Can anyone recommend me a TV series that has a great Picture Quality with a large display ( plasma or Projector ) ?

    Thanks

    Edgler

    Both Alias and Futurama offer pretty solid video quality.

    Funny suggestion but check out both the Jackass movie and 2 series DVDs. The shock pads segment in the movie looks crystal clear on my display.

    Grain is not necessarily an indicator of poor picture quality, artifacting or over compression. It may be a reflection of the film stock used or director intent in the original presentation. Think Saving Private Ryan or The Godfather, for example. I've not watched CSI much, but I do know they sometimes go for a "gritty" look, which can be achieved by increasing film grain.

    Jeff could be correct.
    Some of the shows are filmed that way.
    From what I understand, your pj has a native res of 1280x720. It's highest being 1280x1024. Can you adjust your pj to the higher res??
    Just to be sure you're getting the best PQ, is it possible to view something like Finding Nemo.
    I found that The Matrix, with all its dark scenes, is a good test.
    If the pq is clear, then you'd know it's not your pj, or connections, and what you viewed was filmed that way, or, it could be a lousy transfer.
    Some DVDs are transfered poorly, and the resulting PQ will reflect that.
    Just some suggestions to help eliminate your prob.
