I recently bought a Hitachi 51SWX20B and found that watching D* on Ultimate TV using S-video is horrible. The picture is very blurry. Watching on DVD through component looks very good. Not being able to enjoy watching television was very disappointing so I went out and bought the Samsung SIR160 for HDTV. I hooked the receiver up using DVI and the HDTV channels look amazing, but there are less than 10 channels to view on HDTV and the rest of the channels don't look much better than the Ultimate TV. To make it even more frustrating, my old Sony 52" 4:3 RP and the 10 year old 32" Sony Trinitron in my bedroom give a better picture on D* than my new Hitachi. What can I do to make watching television more acceptable? Should I get a smaller television? Maybe I should drop the RPTV and go to a tube.
