Apparently theyre both upscaling no matter the screen size and shape. So I found a few threads that were actually talking about resolution to post in. But thanks for the advice guys. If you happen to run across a better thread please let me know. Thanks.

And now the Samsung. I'd still be surprised if they're upscaling on on those inputs but I don't know that TV either (my Panasonic widescreen HD CRT doesn't, but there is a game mode that makes stuff look cruddy). Of course maybe they're doing something other than upscaling. Have you read the manuals?

Are you zooming the image? That'll amplify the crud. My friends with the DirecTV SD service - it would only output 4:3. So the wife insisted on the stretch aspect to fill their 16:9 screen claiming "that's how it's supposed to look." Drove me nuts to look at sideways-stretched images. I think it's suspicious you only have the problem with this service...

I have one of the UK 720p Samsung slim ones and I found the PQ awful, picture is so dull and unsharp, I felt the same about a Samsung tv I owned from about 2001.

Its that blacks look gray more than anything, on the other hand my 21 inch Samsung SD tv from about 2004 blows every other tv out of the water to the point where people I know who are used to lcd tvs think the colours are over saturated.

Greetings,

I have a Samsung Model: TXS3082WHX/XAA Version: SA01 and the picture is quite good.

The problem is that when I watch t.v. (ex. sports) or play video games, the scoreboard or HUD is partially cut off.

I can't seem to find a way to fix this. Any ideas are appreciated.

Thanks!

My TX-T3092WH is slowly biting the dust. When warm, I can still watch TV, but the upper 1/4 of the screen is blurry. When cold upon initial startup, the whole damn screen is blurry. This has progressively gotten worse and worse over the past 3 years. Probably a bad capacitor or two. A local TV repairman told me that it would cost me $60 to get it fixed by him (if it can be fixed). I'm not sure it's worth that much.

I'm thinking of replacing it with a SONY Hi-Scan or Super Fine Pitch CRT TV, but my wife wants me to go with a 32" LED/LCD.

For now, I'll continue to watch "blurry vision" for the top 4-5" of the screen until I make up my mind.

I would recommend letting the Samsung set go. A 34" Sony fine dot CRT has incredible fidelity, but have you ever tried to move one of those? They are well over 200 pounds. And I have to wonder if they aren't demanding a premium price nowadays as collector's items, and soon to be antiques. A 32" LED backlit LCD set isn't a bad idea. However, I believe a 32" LCD set cannot fully resolve a 1920 x 1080 signal, because it can't display all the pixels. I believe you need at least a 40" screen to fully resolve 1920 x 1080. If Ratman is still out there, maybe he remembers. Now, nobody says a TV set is required to resolve all the lines delivered via the signal, but those on this forum are typically looking for high fidelity, so that's why I bring it up. If I was in the market for a small screen HD set (small meaning under 55"), I would go right to the LG OLED offerings, where you can get a 2015 or 2016 set for around $1,500. Incredible! I paid $1,499 for my 46" Samsung LCD HDTV years ago, and it was a high-end 850 series set. To think one can get an OLED panel of the same size for the same price blows my mind. Even more mind-blowing is the price of 50-55" LCD sets these days. Best of luck to you.

Thanks for your input. Yes, I've moved two KD-36XS955 sets, which weigh a little more than the KD-34XBR960. It was a royal pain.

I either find a set that fits the hole in my entertainment center (maximum of 32" wide), or I scrap the whole thing and go with a significantly larger screen and figure out how to house my A/V receiver, Blu-ray player, and satellite receiver. Since I'm going to keep my entertainment center for the foreseeable future, I'm probably going to go with the Samsung UN32J5500AFXZA once the price drops back down to $250 at Best Buy. I can wait it out. If it turns out that I want something bigger, I'll worry about that then.

The image on my display corners are seriously out of focus. Does anyone know which pot to adjust?
