Recommended Posts

slightly, yes. but it should still look better then what you're describing. could b e a bad box if you can't get it to 16x9....

 

what size tv are you dealing with here? if it's a larger HD lcd/plasma, then yes, basic SD tv can look like what you are talking about sometime.

A better option if both have the connections would be to use component. Just don't be surprised if the picture is still not too good, SD has a tendency too not look too good on a HD TV, even when connected via HDMI.

being DLP has NOTHING to do w/ pixelation.

 

if you are able, try steping up to something more toward HD and see what happens. large HD screens showing SD material tend to have this issue.

Amen, wdey. AFAS DLP goes, it tends to have the best picture of all the HD sets. The problem w/ HD TV's is if your source sucks, the image shown on the screen will suffer greatly since the TV's were designed to show high detail.

 

OP, get some sort of HD source and see what a difference it makes.
