So, I just got my third 467 (first was dropped, second went out with the three blinking lights). I'm watching it now, on component input from DVD, and ... it's not very good. The dithering is driving me nuts, and there's a constant "blinking" of pixels that is driving me nuts. It's like a swarm of fruit flies are flapping around behind the screen.


I've tried numerous SM tweaks, but can't get rid of it. To me, this is so obvious that I'd think this TV is an early proto. SD TV is almost unwatchable, clay-faces, distortion, and even worse dithering.


Any thoughts? I wonder if some of it is individual, "persistance of vision," for example (I can easily see fluorescent lights blinking their 60Hz dance). But the dithering is the worst. Is there a setting I'm missing? The last set, that died, had the same problems I'm seeing. I really want to like this set. These TVs are "flying off the shelves," and I believe from that they should be great -- looked great in the store, but that was off an HD feed. I'm not delighted in owning a $3K TV that only looks good under certain circumstances.


Thanks,


Brats

Bratwurst:


I just got the same set and I feel pretty much the same way. The set looks spectacular on HD and DVD but "noisy" on standard sources. According to one review, "fix" is DVI from Sammy HD receiver, as they felt that even non HD was better this way.


As usual, the answer is more $$$...

Quite close, actually, perhaps 8'. That'll change after today, I'm moving (as we speak) into a new house and the TV's going into a much larger room.


I was wondering whether being close like that brought out the problems. Is that what you were thinking?

Yes, I think that up close the Samsung DLPs can look pretty ugly, even on still images. As you get further and further back, the PQ improves. Depending on your vision, you have to find the sweet spot distance at which you can't see the dithering, or it least it doesn't bother you. 8' is probably too close for you for the 46" set.


Motion dither artifacting is another issue. I find that those artifacts are visible from farther back than the normal DLP dithering, but I still think the artifacts would be far less objectionable from farther viewing distances.
