I recently got my Sony KDL-46XBR2 hooked up to
an OTA HDTV antenna. I noticed that in all hi-def
channels, 1080i and 720p, there are small but many
motion or pixel artifacts. Most noticeable along edges
I also notice this when I hook up my ATI HDTV wonder
and receive the same channels on my computer monitor.
Being a newbie, I wonder if someone can me if these
are encoder artifacts (from the source) or decoder
artifacts (in the TV or driver, with pixels being tossed out to
stay in sync) ? Or how to tell the difference.
If it is encoder artifacts, does this mean that we are
at the mercy of lousy (and lossy) hardware at the broadcasting
