Have you tried hooking your HDTV up to a DVD player to see if the shadow effect you are seeing via the cable box happens with DVDs as well? If there is no problem from the DVD player then your LCD TV isn't the issue. You might also want to try turning off many of the image enhancers in your TV's settings menu.
As for ideal connections - run HDMI from your cable box to your HDTV, like you have set up already. Also, try using a different HDMI cable to see if the cable itself is the problem.
I am so very disappointed that no one replied in the Samsung forum. What good is that forum is no one reads or answers the questions? I thought maybe I would have better luck in this forum. Thank you.
Samsung LCD TV LN40A550 and Samsung Blu Ray Player BD-P1500

My husband and I just bought both of the above one month ago. We also bought Monster cables HDMI. For the most part, we are happy with this television. It is a perfect size for our bedroom. Our question is why does it look like people's eyes are bouncing around on their face, or there are shadows on faces when they turn. It is like something is not in sync with something else. It is very annoying to me and also very disappointing. I did call Samsung after a few days of having the tv and was told that it was most likely the pvr cable box setup. I called them and they changed some things, which made it look a little better. We used Wirewize to hook up our equipment, but what they told us was not correct and we were disappointed that things didn't work properly. So I don't recommend them at all. How do we know for sure that we have hooked up all the wiring properly? I am always aware of this movement on the screen and wonder if there is something that we could adjust to make it right or should I insist that a Samsung technician come in to our home and look at it, as was suggested in the call I made. I hope we didn't get a bad Samsung television. Any answers or remarks would be greatly appreciated in this matter.
