well it depends on the signal broadcast as well. If you are watching a action picture with an interlaced broadcast then yes you are going to probably see some pixelation. A progressive broadcast will be much smoother for action and sports though it does not have all the resolution of the 1080 picture. Also LCd's are know to be slower than most other tv's in moving scenes as to where a dlp picture is much smoother as well.
But until people boradcast in 1080P and you have a tv that can handle the signal you won't get the best possible of both world's.
Sansumg should take care of that next month with their new 1080P dlp pedestal.
Is anyone else noticing that HD sets can't handle fast moving action without pixelating the images somewhat? I've seen this on CRT projection, LCD and DLP sets running a true HD signal. In fact, I'm considering buying a tube HDTV because I don't see it occur on those sets, although I'm not crazy about the limited screen size (36" just isn't enough any longer!).
Are there limitations to current HD sets that prevent them from smootly handling FAST pictures changes? I can understand that a bank of 40 TVs at Best Buy, all running the same video feed, will likely result in a loss of quality, so I made sure to monitor only sets running their own discrete feed....but the problem remains. An explosion looks like a bunch of little blocks, a golfer swings a jagged golf club, etc. When things slow back down, the image is awesome, but why sacrifice? What's going on? Is the current crop of TVs not able to reproduce a faithful image that quickly?
