I know that LED B6000/B7000 have very bad PQ with SD signal.What about B750?
Do the math of what 480i is --- it equates to a Turd comparatively no matter the TV but it does matter channel to channel - I have some digital SD channels that are excellent on my panels while others are Super Turds with the same 480i. I also have a Blu-Ray with an HQV Chip that makes SD close to HD but never quite but still damn good. HD is 500-600% improvement and when you get used to it - you'll actually get addicted to watching many things you might not otherwise- the nothingness and nature of "Sunrise Earth" can be amazing in HD as virtually anything - even boring blurry golf in SD is a total different game in wide screen HD even if you don't golf.
I'm confident you'll find the same results and the fix is to maximize HD sources or don't waste your money IMO unless you can accept those Turd broadcasts you must tolerate until everything is HD - my bet is on HD or else would not waste the money.
I tolerate that 10% for when I watch CNBC to watch the market but 90+% is HD. I would check with BPMurr the OP since he's owned more top of the line panels that most anyone in recent years on these threads that I've witnessed - perhaps he could chime in.
