    I've noticed this on several DVD films, Angel Heart in particular is VERY BAD.

    Must admit I've never noticed it on DTV (Cable or Freeview, don't have Sky).

    Come to think of it I see different types of artefacts on DTV than I see on DVD.

    For example (apologies for lack of technical definitions!)....

    Pixelling/Blockiness
    Regularly on TV but never on DVD

    Blending of Shades
    Like a sky or light source, you can literally see the different shades 'banded' together. ALWAYS on TV but never on DVD.

    Trails
    Sometimes on DVD but never on TV (even footy).
    Not on my set anyway.
