    Sony KD32dx51 giving better picture than KD32DC11 and latter is current model, both 50Hz and both CRT.
    I am seeing a high compression woolly JPG type picture on all LCD’s and saw the same on the 32DC11.

    LCD will come into its own with High Definition broadcast so losing the woolliness,
    Sky first with £100/month…ouch !…Freeview later and free…but when ?
    I have no intention of paying Telewest £100 if they follow suit.
    IS THIS POOR JPG QLTY IMAGE normal until HD broadcast happens …if so forget it !

    I shall be playing back my existing recordings, now being transferred to DVD, and my DVD movies on my just purchased DVD/HDD Panny EH50. What of these, will I see woolly pictures when before they were crisp ?

    LCD…its important to sit further back than my 5ft CRT distance, then woolliness goes…but unable to move further back, but then also the screen ceases to be so big in my view, so the picture is smaller in my vision. 4 times screen is viewing distance, so who has 13ft seat to 40inch screen distance ?

    You will need a V series Sony, better than S series, has High res processor not so woolly, get a KDL-V32A12U,…a mere £1800.

    Are the shop models set up wrong, why so woolly and will my footage and movies be like this ?

    Existing DVD movies you can play back with a Sony RDR HXD90, it will uprate them to HD. Having just bought my Panny that’s a pain !

    Just not sure about this LCD thing at all.

    If you are seeing JPEG blocking then it sounds like you are sitting too close to the screen. Having said that, you would have the same problem with digital material viewed on a CRT screen so it is not peculiar to LCDs.

    P.S. If Sky's HD service will be £100 per month then I can't see too many takers!

    The problem isn't LCD, the problem is SD sources on fixed high resolution display devices, that also happen to be big screens. PC filtering tools like FFD show can take the sting out of the nasty scaling present on a TV set, but when a source has been compressed into oblivion there's nothing you can do.

    You should consider the Sharp aquos P50 - which is a lower definition screen designed for displaying SD sources - no scaling there for PAL sources.
    Keep in mind - compressed sources will still have artefacts, but they won't have been scaled into bigger artefacts to fit the high res screen.

    Of course, that same screen when fed HD sources, will have to scale down and then you will lose some of the benefit of HD - like loss of detail.

    Basically, you cannot win when there's a mix of sources involved - it will always be a compromise either way.
