I haven't noticed the problem at all - and I think quite a few others are in the same boat. If it's there, it must be pretty subtle. That's not to say it's not potentially annoying if you notice it,...

I don't have DVE or AVIA, so I can't attempt to reproduce your tests, but in regular viewing of my TiVo, the PQ is quite good. I haven't been able to notice any problems.

I hosted a party - albeit a small one - with my new 50" panny. The game looked fantastic and all my guests commented on how great the picture was. May have sold some of 'em on PDPs.

I've played with both Stretch & Just mode - and I prefer stretch. In "just" mode, when the camera pans, you can see the distortion on the sides of the image very plainly. It's not bad when there are...

I've got the L2335 - and for PC use, I'd go with the extra resolution in a heartbeat. 1920x1200 makes for lots of info on the screen at once.

HD looks great on it too

Honestly, I don't think this can be attributed to the quality of the cable - but rather the d/a conversion. If you use HDMI or DVI, the cable box doesn't convert the signal to analog but rather...

Hopefully you paid with a credit card - if so, dispute the charge with your credit card company. It's such a wonderful feeling to stick it to unscrupulous companies like that!

I actually do use S-Video for my TiVo on my 50" 7UY. Perhaps it's because I haven't been looking for it, but I don't notice the s-video problem in normal viewing. Of course, digital cable can only...

I'd suggest configuring the cable box to pass through the native format for each channel (if that's an option on that box) - and let the processor in the Panny do the work. Scalers/deinterlacers in...

I really like the 42" Panasonic ED - looks fantastic with HD & DVD, and good with SD. It's also a great bargain (as plasmas go).

DLP will buy you a larger screen size for the money, and the...
