Hallelujah! My Sony WEGA 36XBR450 and Progressive Scan DVD player arrive tomorrow, and I am chomping at the bit to bust out my AVIA disc and start the calibration. When we were in the store making our purchase, they were playing a cable broadcast of the Phils/Astros game, and the cable programming went through the Composite video in connection on the back of the WEGA that we were looking at. The picture looked awful! Very blurry, colors smeared together, faces washed out...everything. I assured my wife that it was because the signal was degraded by the time it got to the WEGA, (it was going through 40+ sets in the room), and that they (stupidly) used Composite-in instead of S-Video. Plus, the set was probably not calibrated properly anyway. We currently have Time Warner Digital Cable going through our Receiver into our 27" Trinitron TV via S-Video. The picture is very nice - as good as it's gonna get. Can any of you who own similar sets, preferably the same model, or last year's model - tell me how your cable programming looks? Anyone have Digital Cable? I know DVD's will look fantastic, but my wife will be really depressed if everything on TV looks like crap. Thanks. ------------------ "You advance yourself only by my good graces."
