    Hi,

    Is this Panasonic set any good for sport?
    One of my fave watches is Match of the Day, and I hate to see blurring etc.
    I have Sky+, the SD flavour, and I dont want to upgrade to Sky HD (for now).

    TIA,

    Zebs

    Hi:
    Zebs

    I can assure you my friend that the 32 LXD7OO is superb with football.
    This is due to the fact that that it handles motion better than any other
    32 TV out there,an opinion shared by all reviewers and my own personal
    experience. In SD you may think your viewing HD.

    Personally, I dont see the SD picture to be any worse with blurring than on HD. Just with HD you get that better sharpness and clarity. If you know what I mean so for that score its a :smashin:

    However:thumbsdow. My LXD700 can encounter some very bad smudging at the edge of the screen on ITV`s grand prix and some other fast camera swings like Cricket can have.
    Also, this smudging can appear very heavily around players in cricket and football on the close up shots (pitch side etc) but never on the normal wide camera view. I must stress though that this doesnt always happen and the significance of it varies depending on the broadcaster. Whats also bizarre is that one pitch side camera might show it up badly and another in the same game it be crystal clear. I am far from being alone in this and it gets right on my wick. I cant understand why some people say they dont have it. My TV seems to be set up well.

    Hi
    Kev Russ
    I dont watch cricket or Grand Prix but I do watch a lot of football.
    I have never experienced any of the problems you mention and have
    found that irrespective of the source; be it live match / recording or
    dvd playback,the football is superb and motion handling every bit as
    good as my old 100 hz TV. I reckon Im just Blessed.:)

    :(

    Ive seen it on HD and SD. It was bad on the liverpool game last night. Only when there was a pitch side camera view though. When it did it though, it was nothing short of disgracefull. ITV is always worse though.

    never seen it on a film. always tops.

    Thanks for your comments, I'm very close to getting this TV.

    I watched some of the Liverpool footy on ITV last night on my current CRT - it was very blurry in places so I think we can blame the rubbish broadcast for that one!!

    Cheers,

    Zebs

    yeh, Generally though mate, this TV is excellent. I just find it hard to forgive this smudging for the expense of these sets. Maybe it is the braodcasters but I would like to think technology these days can get some of the basics right.

    The poor picture on this match has nothing to do with ITV, it was an away game and match pictures were provided by the local broadcaster. It is the same with most european away games, especially in eastern europe.

    Many of these games are not in widescreen - the local broadcasters often don't have anywhere near the latest broadcasting spec.

    ITV is always bad with me but my point was that I think its the broadcaster rather than the TV, allthough I would expect the TV to handle these problems better.:cool:

    I had a loan of one of these tvs, while in between plasmas. It's the only LCD thats allowed me to watch a game of football and enjoy it. PQ on Sky (SD and HD) was great and the freeview reception was excellent. I am seriously thinking of buying one for our "games" room.
