I am not sure if what I am seeing is normal and if so correctable or if the TV is a concern

I have a 50U50 and watching Dish Network on a VIP222K connected via HDMI.

Watching Dr.Oz I noticed during a fitness segment that where there was movement the trainers hands and legs when moving very fast were not a blur but turned horizontally striped. I had noticed these lines on some slower moving commercials but usually those were in SD so I wrote it off as a low quality broadcast.

I have the TV set to FULL and Size 2.

After seeing an increasing amount of these lines I was guessing it was something to do with interlacing. I had the receiver set to 1080i so I changed the box to 720p but it died not change anything. I still had these horizontal lines only in areas of motion.


I do not see it all the time on any particular channels

Is this normal to see? Just another example of the poor PQ from DISH? Is there a test you know of to be sure it is not a defect in the TV?


what are these lines , why do they occur and proper settings deal with this?

Have you tried other sources? Do you have a DVD/BD player hooked up to the TV via HDMI too?

Can you swap out boxes with Dish? Maybe the box is having issues.

Do you know the lines I speak of?
That is step one.

I have 3 211K boxes all brand new not refurbs from Dish
Unless a setting, it is not the box All boxes set to 1080i currently. Two TVs are side by side right now for testings but coming form their own cable running from the jack to the dish.

I have not noticed it from bluray or did I expect it to.
But that is not the point. This is about the lines I see that comes out of the dish box to the TV.
I had noticed more and more on some commercials but not before upgrading to HD.
I had then onlhy noticed it on a few commercials that would get the black side bars on HD stations so figured it was a format issue with the older commercials.
But seeing it on Dr. Oz was a concern and I want to know what causes this and if it can be fixed via a setting or just some shows are formatted so poor that my TV is picking up something.
Either that or this Tv is not able to handle it.

I just do not know if it is a setting or the feed.
