I have a new Hitachi 55HDS69, and it's great but non-HD channels seem to have this horizontal doubling effect. It's most aparent with vertical lines such as on-screen text, but it's bad enough that the I can make out a shadow on each side of practically any object. It happens no matter what source I use (sat box or DVD).


I had an authorized tech come over to look at it, and he said there's nothing wrong with the set, that's it's just a side-effect of the upconversion of non-HD signal. He said it happens with all plasmas and I should just deal with the crappy picture. I can't bring myself to buy his story. My DLP is running off the same signal and doesn't have this problem.


Please advise. Is this normal? Should I call Hitachi and complain?

These are artifacts and for SD, it is pretty common.

Keep in mind that as sources get better (HD cameras..etc), SD will start to look like HD and some SD channels are pretty darn good.
