    I have just upgraded my CRT TV to a Mikomi LCD 20in TV after reading good reviews about it.

    I am very disappointed with the picture as it appears very grainy.

    My CRT TV had a perfect picture.

    I have an aerial on my roof too.

    Any ideas why this is the case? I was under the impression LCD TV pictures were better then CRT.

    Is it a faulty TV? Or is this just what they should be like?

    I would appreciate any help as I am tempted to take it back and get a 20in CRT for 200 pounds less.

    Thanks

    Paul

    get yourself a digital signal into it,lcd are very high quality pictures therefore require a good signal and analogue just dont cut it, :lesson:

    Thanks for the reply

    The picture is the same when I use my freeview box on it.

    Could it be a bad signal? Though the CRT TV Picture quality was perfect

    Thanks

    If it is the signal - will a booster sort it out?

    crt pictures are not as detailed as lcd so what is actually is a very good clear picture is just the picture noise a crt wont show up unless you have something like a top end toshiba

    The image quality on Sky wouldn't be any better.

    ????? surely a pure digital signal from a sattelite will be better than an analogue aerial picking up a signal and then having it converted a bit like passive and active speaker conversion.... open to learning :lesson:

    Freeview's digital. The digital signal is received by the antenna - it's not an analogue aerial as such, I don't think. Satellite receives the signal in a similar way - just from a satellite in space instead.
