Ok. Just got a brand new Samsung PN58A550.
I'm using compontent cables.
I have Cablevision hd cable for the incoming signal.
Love it, basically. My main issue is that I'm seeing what I'd call artifacting (I think others may refer to as ghosting) on fast moving images - looks like video residue or pixels around fast moving objects. I bought this mainly for sports. I notice it's worse on some channels than others.
If it's the incoming signal I'll have to live with that. If it's my tv than I may return and consider other options, but my understanding is that this is a pretty solid tv. I suspects it's the signal, I know cable compresses signals. But I don't really know...
1. So my main question is whether this issue is my tv, or connection cables, or incoming cable signal.
2. Second, does it make sense that hd sports looks better on some channels than others, are they producing/transmitting at varying qualities?
3. does hdmi make much difference from component connection?
