Are you familiar with the BBC's collection of wildlife/prehistoric DVDs? I have a collection of them from when I had my DVD player-32" CRT set up. About...30 ...about 500 hours . They're dated 2003, 2005, etc...from BBC, PBS, NatGeo, etc.
Now that I have a 3D blu ray-55" LED, I dug up all those DVDs to be rewatched on the 55". The BBC's aren't translating well . Walking With Dinosaurs looks really bad. Ancient Americas slightly better. They have a grainy, cloudy look to them.
Is it just that these older U.K. made discs just weren't meant for this set up? Let down, because a lot of these discs have stunning scenery and scenes that would look great rewatching it on the new set. I've got another non-3D blue ray and a standard def DVD player, made it comes out clearer on one of those?
I think it is more to do with the quality of the deinterlacer and scaler being used: TVs don't necessarily have the best processing for that.
The Oppo players and the Toshiba XA2 HD-DVD player were supposed to be very good at upscaling SD material, so perhaps if you have a better player connected to the TV it might help.
Those UK discs will also be 576i50, which doesn't work too well on most USA 60Hz TVs without standards conversion artifacts.
