Thanks yes i did read and know about the TV being bigger etc. and being able to show the faults, but it surprises me that my 36" tube has considerable better picture quality than the 46"LCD in SD channels. Yes the HD channels look brilliant, but unfortunately they are few and far between. I've tried to obtain the DVD to calibrate my tv, but can't find it anywhere locally in any store. I will have to order it online and perhaps it will help?
I did not realize there was a specific sequence in which you needed to follow to calibrate the TV. Dishnetwork is a Satellite provider in my area. Otherwise the cable TV company is Blue Ridge Cable, but we are not signed up with them. It is analogue to my knowledge and is there a way to increase that signal? I am using an HDMI cable from the box to the TV directly. Perhaps i will try to run the signal through my blue ray dvd player? I will continue to try to follow your lead. Thank God for this website. Otherwise this TV would be on its way back to the store. I just hope i can work it out.
Thanks for the help, it is much appreciated!
