OK so this might be a bit long winded. My father wanted me to go see my Uncle's new LED TV. Said that it was so much better than his LCD and that the TV shows looked "different". So I agreed and went to see this new TV. I agreed, it did look "different". My Uncle, my father and myself have DirecTV. So my father goes out to buy this same TV. He also saw this "difference" in the display. So a week or so goes by and the new season shows come out. We mainly watch the CBS shows, but on my TV (SONY XBR LCD) I also see this "difference". Now I don't believe it is the TV, but rather the broadcast, cameras, Directv or something. The picture is much sharper, much more "natural" looking, it is hard to describe. I also notice on the CBS "splash screens" where there is a head shot of one of the shows or something that there are "floating" CBS symbols. These would lend itself to a 3D TV, how they float around. Is CBS doing something different with their broadcast, their camera technology, is it Directv? It is something because there is a noticeable difference, even to the point my kids see the difference. I can not speak for NBC of Fox because the shows we mainly watch are on CBS. I will have to check them out to see if there is the same difference...
