channels change slow on lcd's

by mamontano / November 30, 2008 10:45 PM PST

tv= Sharp LC-26SB14U (costco)
cable company = cox

Why do the channels change so slow when hooked up to straight
cable (basic cable no cable box)? Do other brands change channels

what is "slow"???
by givemeaname / December 1, 2008 4:01 AM PST

I just counted 4.5 sec from picture to picture on my SXRD using dishnetwork HD-DVR, the sound takes 2 sec. It is the same on my LCD samsung & a hair faster on my Sony HD-CRT, but that has a diffrent model HD-DVR

I had a samsung a couple of years ago hooked up to a cable box
and it changed channels fine. When i got rid of the box and went
straight cable - same thing. Slow channel changing. I thought by
now they would have improved this. I thought I read somewhere that
the toshibas change channels quicker but it looks to me that without
the cable box its just going to be that way.
