by brentg33 / January 20, 2006 3:55 PM PST

Hi,
i just got a new 42" DLP from samsung and the one issue i have is that while watching sports in HD, especially ice hockey....it seems when the camera pans up and down the ice...there are occasional times where it seems the image isnt fluid...kinda lags for a second....its hard to explain....but i would like some help in figuring out if this is a tv issue or my cable (comcast) issue...
thanks in advance

I have a CRT-RP and some times I see strange things like that. My guess is that it is on the sending end. John

I get the same thing

I just got an AKAI 46'' DLP and Rogers HD. I get the same thing with the smudged movement any time the camera moves quickly - mostly with sports and especially with hockey. This occurs both in HD and analogue formats. However, on my analogue TV, this does not occur. So, it's either DLP technology or just Rogers crappy signal. I have noticed, in comparison to satellite, Rogers is about 10 to 20 percent less sharp. It is irritating and a major disappointment with this format.

...just watched a game on NBC HD and motion was captured perfectly. No blurring. So, you must have been watching CBC. Either CBC or Rogers' treatment of the CBC feed is causing the pixels to blur.

...If it still does it then it's the DLP TV. If not, it's your cable/satellite provider who's at fault.

I also have a Samsung 42"DLP HLR4264W.I feel that it's like there is a film on the screen sometimes.I am receiving my reception through Bell Expressvu.It seems worse when watching hockey or when there is a lot of white on the screen.I was wondering if you notice anything like that with yours.I don't really notice the problem you are having so it might be your service.

I switched over my hookups to d.v.i. with a h.d.m.i. to d.v.i. adapter and I notice a much better picture and no lag, Some folks say that there is no difference in piture quality between h.d.m.i vs componit vidio cables but for me there was a huge difference in picture quality good luck stewart

It is the pixelation in the tv. There is no exact way to fix it except to buy another tv or just move further back from the tv. It will look a lot better from further back.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
