I went into bestbuy to checkout the HDTVs and they all had fuzz/noise, of course none were being fed proper HD except one, which was connected on it's own line with a PS3 playing a blu-ray dvd trailers, the thing is all the trailers had a fuzz/noise to them, but it was definitely playing HD...


Are all HD movies like this? Or is it the HDTVs doing this? Cause i have a computer monitor and everyting I do (Play games, watch movies) had been crisp clear to me.


heres a screenshot of what it looks like, not sure if its the camera doing this or not but it's not my picture:

I had a question like this a couple days ago and it was answered.. I'm not too sure if the fuzz is supposed to be there.. it may be normal and it may not be... I'm in the same boat as you..


The fuzz/noise you're talking about is throughout the whole screen and is even correct?


Anyone with the information?

I was just reading about power surge protectors and how some of them have emi filters or something that stabilize the watts being fed to the tv, to reduce fuzz or something, so maybe since all the tvs at bestbuy were connected to one big power slot thing they were getting fuzz from the power feed or something.. I have no idea this is just a theory lol

Ironically, it may be because the sharpness is set too high. High sharpness is typical of store displays, and it often makes things look fuzzy (though I would actually describe it as "gritty").

On film-based media this is called grainy / graininess. I can see it on my blu-ray with "Planet Earth" on some scenes. I am not sure if Blu-ray is just such high resolution that I can see the grain of the original film or if this is a result of some signal processing. I have my "sharpness" setting on the TV set to just below the default mid-level (-2 out of +/- 10.)
