I'm being asked to return it on Wed. I am still confused about what is actually bad. For all I know, the signal (hardware wiring etc./cable provider) is poor! But, then why was it okay with the digital box when using a CRT TV?
I'm concerned that I'll return the TV and a new one will not be any better. At least, there's 30 days for return.
I just wanted to thank all who replies! Keep 'em coming if you have anything to add! :-)
Since, it's in Canada, there are poor choices of sets and they're expensive. Taxes are high and also, there's an 'environmental' fee. Do you have that in the States, too?
The cheapest 32"+ set is a 40" set but it's also a Dynex brand. Maybe 720p sets will help with the aspect ratio choices.
Someone here downloaded the Dynex manual (I appreciate that! ) and this will show that the video modes are:
aspect ratios: auto, normal, wide, zoom, cinema

I'm only mentioning it because I'm confused as well! LOL!
But, besides trying to set up the 'best' aspect ratio, the picture is the other issue. However, with some pictures better than other (channels), I am wondering if it's partly the signal and maybe the 1080p factor?
I really don't know. I'm speculating. Another test will be trying a different TV but I wonder how many trips to the big box store I'm going to be doing!
P.S. Would an antenna really help??!? I thought for just using coax (cable signal), maybe, but that's somewhat of an expensive test. I'd have to be able to return it if it doesn't make much difference.
