I recently bought the 32HL86. I have it hooked up to a Rogers HDTV box via HDMI and component (Red, Blue, Green) inputs. HDTV picture quality varies from program to program. Film based programs originally shot in HDTV and live sports look great. Standard channels look awful. Upconverted programs and video-based programs on HDTV channels are OK but look better on my 30" Samsung CRT HDTV. Have you activated the noise reduction feature (CableClear) in the picture menu ? I haven't played with it as it is only active for 480i inputs through the coaxial and S-video inputs.
