I purchased this 32" set for primarily watching CNBC in my office. I sit about 4' from the screen. It's connected via HDMI to a DTV HR24. The picture looks good but I notice that the focus/sharpness of people on screen seems to go in and out. You can see nice HD sharpness, then the image gets milky, then sharp, etc. I've tried everything - turned off Noise Reduction, etc.

I never noticed this on either of my 56" or 61" DLP's. This is my first LCD/LED screen - plus I know I'm sitting kinda close too.

Anyone else notice this? - I tried other HD channels and don't notice it as much but still see it.

I now also purchased the Panasonic L32E5 to compare. Not sure but I might still see the same issue.

Thoughts?

Are you seeing this variation in sharpness within the same camera shot? It's pretty common to see sharpness variations between, e.g., the sharpness of a studio shot of an anchor, versus a remote shot of a guest in another studio. It's also common for video replays--especially when sourced from another network or a source other than the host network--to be significantly less sharp. I notice these variations quite a bit when watching cable news stations such as CNBC, MSNBC, and CNN.

If, on the other hand, you're seeing significant sharpness variations within the same continuous camera shot, or within a movie or television series episode, you may have a problem--either with the television, or with your eyes.

The issue is all the time - even when showing Mandy...

You can see the HD lines in faces then it's like some kind of anti-aliasing is going on to smooth it out. It's the back and forth between sharp and slightly less sharp that is quite visible to me. I am going through a 50Ft high quality HDMI cable and a 1-2 HDMI splitter. I removed the splitter but still noticed the issue.
