    Not sure if this is the right forum for this if not mods please move.

    Im probably not going to explain this too well so bear with me :rolleyes:

    Right i have a Sony 7700 dvd conected to my Sony TV KV-32FD1E it is connected with QED SQUART running via RGB. Now when playing i seem to get blurry images when things move on screen, they dont even have to move fast. And it looks quite pixilated sometimes too, is there anything i can do to solve this? also all my sky channels through coaxial on tv have gone really bad recently they are fine on rgb.

    Thanks in advance

    Is your tv 100hz?

    100hz tvs can cause terrible smearing on moving objects due to the way they produce the image - it uses a buffer for two images, and if the 1st is a little out of line with 2nd, you'll get smearing.

    Also, make sure all processing is turned off, and that the sharpness is at least below half way.

    The processing 'features' tend to introduce artefacts into the image, an having the sharpness too high will make the tv try to define any edges, such as pixels and blocks. This will make digital broadcasts look more blocky, and backgrounds can be made to look alive as the various colour shades are made distinct rather than blended. Backgrounds can tend to look alive with crawlies and moving dots.

    HTH

    It's not this is it?

    "Picture shading with DVD player

    Model: KV-28FD1E, KV-28FD1K, KV-28FD1K/3, KV-32FD1E, KV-32FD1K, KV-32FD1K/3
    Sympton: When playing back certain software using a DVD player, a shadow may be observed on the screen
    Solution: On the B1 Board, replace IC317 PC83C654EBA565 (8-759-470-81) with P87C6544A44 (8-948-007-24)"

    Otherwise,try routing it via a Video etc,or trying a different DVD player/TV.
