They are not picky about things but just liked the thin factor of the Plasma. After getting the set home and hooking up a DVD via RGB cables the picture seemed "grainy" on the "Chicago" DVD we used and a slightly grainy on the "Terminal" DVD. (These are the only things available to watch as they are displaced because of Hurricane Rita and the Dish Network hasn't come to hook up the service yet)
So my questions are:
1) Is this picture supposed to be "grainy" on the set or specifically that movie?
2) We set the display on the DVD to 16:9 and 480p but the set still put the bars on the left and right. We changed the display to Full and that filled the screen. Is that the correct setting? Does this set not automatically switch like my Samsung DLP?
I'm just worried because the set doesn't look as clean and crisp as the ones on display did. The display ones shouldn't look better with customers messing with them and all being split from the same feed. Once again, they bought the Toshiba sight unseen.
I am a noob giving it a try, more experienced members please chime in. I'd like to have confirmation that the PQ on the Toshiba is not an issue...
