Update on screen tearing issue with DirecTV
I know some other members were having this issue. In my particular case I was getting screen tearing only
when watching DirecTV with an HD DVR running through my Denon 591 when using HDMI. By setting the DirecTV to Native (on)
the 720p resolution in the DirecTV settings I was able to cure the screen tearing. All HD content seems to play at 1080i just fine without a noticeable difference in performance (including sports) and the screen tear is gone.
After months of swapping cables, ruling out sources and the receiver I'm chalking this up to an incompatibility between the LG PK540, the Denon 591 and the DirecTV box. Other people in the forums have had issues with different sets such as a Panny 600m ( http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...1203467&page=3
) and with different receivers as well, such as a Yamaha(By Madw3rld in this thread). I'm thinking at times HDMI is the source of a lot of these issues, but the convenience of it is essential to me.
I hope this information might help someone in the future so that's why I'm sharing
Thanks for all the help along the way guys.
