don't forget, your cable/satellite box might also be doing some up/down/side conversion, depending on what your settings are. my DTV, for instance, converts everything to 1080i if it's not a 1080p show (very rare unless I buy on-demand movies) so if it was originally broadcast at 720p, there's one extra conversion before it even reaches the TV.
and then, there's the problem of the original source.... was this a show that was filmed in HD or has there been additional upconversion done even before it gets to your cable/sat/etc.
Given all those variables and that 65" is just so big you do see all the flaws, it might be hard to calibrate with broadcast material... bluray or dvd should give you better control
hmm, i'm starting to sound like an apologist.
