First of all, I'm new to this forum and new to HDTV. This seems like a nice community you guys have here...I look forward to learning from all of you!


Here's my question:


I just bought a Sony 65" HDTV (KP-65WS500)


I hooked it up last night and I'm not satisfied with the picture quality. When watching cable, or DVDs (using S-video) the picture seems grainy, or blurry. It's hard to explain....it's just not real crisp. I expected the DVD to look brilliant, very crisp and clear and it doesn't. Something has got to be wrong. Sony couldn't get away with this poor of a picture quality for such an expensive TV.


Am I missing something here? Has anyone else had this problem? What can I do to improve the picture quality other than coponant video? I'm going to try the component video tonight, but it should look better than it does even with the S-Video.


Help me out guys...this has really got me down. Spending that much money on a TV and then not getting an impressive picture is depressing!


Thanks!

Hang in there won,


TVs this big require a little bit of adjustment to get them to look their best.


Component video will help some as will turning down your sharpness and contrast.


But I think you may be in "standard" or "blind me with grainy, lack of color" mode". :)


Try using pro or movie mode by accessing your menu. Apart from that read lots here on making the most of your purchase. DVD from s-video should still look pretty good if the DVD is of good quality (there is some grain on DVDs).

Thanks for the reply.

I changed the standard video mode to progressive and movie mode initially and didn't notice a difference. I'll try it again tonight.


After having another night to mess with it, it turns out that my XBOX looks GREAT on it...just as I would like everything to look! The PlayStation2, cable, and DVDs still look like crap. I tried the companent video plugs on the DVD player and they made NO difference. I don't know what the deal is.
