I believe some sets use dithering (Kuros etc) and this can disguise the issue, some broadcasts are also quite low res making the image more pixelated which I guess would also disguise the issue. Banding with HD is def the sets limitations though is it not?
Though I don't notice a lot of false contouring with bluray I can see it via my Vbox watching Outcast in HD and some other programs. Maybe its a mix of what the broadcaster is sending and the limitations of the set?
Maybe some have a way of compensating. Early TVs have a lower gamut than todays so I would expect the problem to be worse in older sets, certainly from Panasonics point of view. I wouldn't write off posterisation in HD due to the broadcast (if its the cause of the problems), again there are good and bad HD (lower quality) broadcasts. I would expect blu ray to be the best consistently. It could though as you say, also be in
due to the limitations of the set, i.e. what the set is capable if displaying (its gamut) but in SD I think its more likely to be the broadcast since colour gamut has improved vastly over older sets.
