PQ less than perfect on the PBS "The Leherer Report"
This isn't in the "ghosting" category, and I often wondered what the topic was all about for I had never experienced it, and so I never read the complete thread, but what happened tonight during the PBS-Leherer Report, channel 284, 6-7.pm., initially made me think that something serious had happened to my TV set.
The program had already started when I tuned in, but as soon as I tuned in there were a couple of sharp cracking sounds followed by the colour draining out of the picture. At one point in the News involving G.W. Bush, his entire face was green ! The colour would change intermittently, giving one the impression that they were attempting to perform repairs, but throughout the entire hour the fluctuations in the colour remained. But the colour problem was not in evidence on any of the other channels.
That was the worst "less than 100 % perfect" picture quality I have experienced in years. Any other program and I would have turned to another channel immediately, but this happens to be one of my favourite all time programs. And to think it comes shortly after PBS have only recently concluded yet another of their fund drives.
