Hi, I recently got a LN40A550 from Best Buy. I have good friends who work there so I got a better deal than Amazon
I am still waiting for all my component/HDMI cables to come in along with my Comcast HD box so I can start viewing TV in good quality. Right now, I am watching Dish Network using composite cables...it is quite ugly sometimes.
I noticed that in all of my channels, during the "lighter" parts of the shows, I can see very faint vertical lines (red/green stripes) across the TV. It may be very faint rainbow colored stripes, but I notice the red/green tint the most. Do you guys think it is because of these composite A/V cables? In the darker/more colorful parts of the shows, I do not notice these lines although I think they are still there. In this case, maybe it is a reflection problem from my lighting? I searched this thread but it seemed like most people were talking about previous problems with 'rainbow' lines on older Samsung tv's.
Any help or insight into this problem will be greatly appreciated!
Also, an unrelated question: Right now I have a Sony VCR/DVD player which only has composite input/outputs on the back besides a component/S-video section for the DVD player. When my Comcast HD box does finally come in, how should connect all three (TV, HD Box, VCR/DVD) together? Will I be able to connect my Comcast box to my VCR/DVD player and then connect to the TV using composite cables? That connection doesn't make sense to me as it seems like it defeats the purpose of connecting directly from the box to the TV using component/HDMI cabling.
Can I also connect from the Comcast box to my TV directly, and do some other sort of connection with my VCR/DVD? I still use VHS recording for some things so I need to be able to record cable TV shows.
Thanks a lot guys, sorry about the long post! This TV does look to be a keeper.
