I'm not entirely sure what you mean by "breaking out", does it look like this?
If so, have you turned on progressive mode on for your DVD player?
i recently bought the Ln40b550,
the picture quality looks fine with the air channels.
however, when i tried my DVD player.
the picture quality is so bad. the images look like breaking out,
(it is difficult to describe it clearly by words),
if you look at the the subtitles or any words displayed,
you can easily tell the image is poor.
i did the comparison: if you look at the display quality of the TV's own manu bar, the pictures look very fine.
while if you look the the picture images of the dvd player's manu, you will see the images are very not clear, and like "breaking out".
i try couple different dvd players (borrowed from my neighbors), same things happen. i even bought a new HD unconverting DVD player (using the HDMI wire), the quality looks a bit better, however, the "breaking out" problem still.
in fact, before i purchased this TV, i went to stores to compare different TVs.
i actually found some of the TVs have this "breaking out" problem, some of them don't and play extremely clear, while they are all showing the same DVDs.
i am thinking whether this is a problem of the entires series of the TVs. but not just an individual problem.
i really love the outlooking of this samsung Toc, that is the reason i bought. but i want to have a high quality and clear DVD display too.
does anyone have a similar problem?
i think it should be.
does anyone knows how to solve this problem?
(again, i tried couple different DVD players of famous brands, and even a new HD unconverting DVD player using HDMI).
appreciate for any experience share, or suggestion
