Here are some SD shots I took. My picture taking process (video camera => TIFF => JPEG) is crap though, so a lot of the detail and smoothness of the pic to the naked eye is lost in these pics. I've seen SD on previous Samsung 1080p LCD's (not the new 65 and 61 models though) and there's no comparison: the Realta HQV on the 747i destroys SD playback from any source. Feed the 747i a crappy signal though, and that's exactly what the set will spit right back at you.
"The McLaughlin Group" on 480i SD with a screen-stretching effect called "Panoramic":
"NiGHTS" (a Sega Saturn game on 480i composite) and "Extra" (syndicated gossip show, 480i on component) on split-screen:
"Match Game" (Game Show Network, 480i) and "Goldeneye 007" (N64 console, 480i S-Video):
"Dateline NBC" and "Que Dice La Gente" (Spanish "Family Feud"). The signal is coming from a cable box as coax into the VCR, and from the VCR to the 747i with a composite signal. These are as low-end as connections get but still:
South American soccer (big screen) and "Deal or No Deal" both coming 480i from the cable box. The screens around are from the 747i's PIP features being tested. Again, in person doesn't look anywhere near as bad as it does in these pics:
Also click on page 7 of this thread to see regular DVD's (480i) on this 747i in action. Later, hope this helped!
