    I recently purchased a Sony KV32FQ86.

    I am very pleased with the television.

    One aspect that is starting to bother me is the clarity of the picture.
    This may sound odd, but it is almost too sharp. Films and programs that I have seen so far all look as though they are being filmed on a stage set, ie the realism seems lost.

    The cars are just too clean and shiny, actors faces are so clear that you can almost see the make up / blemishes the makeup is trying to hide.
    As an example, I watched eric the viking int he cinema (loved it), watched on DVD and it was like watching actors on a stage close up.

    I would like to know if this is normal, if not - what settigns should I play with?
    Am I stiiting too close to the screen? approx 8 ft.

    Fyn,

    It's not often that someone says a display is too sharp!

    I'm ancient enough to remember the introduction of 625 lines in 1964.

    Having watched only 405 lines up until then, many people thought the 625 display was "too realistic".

    Similarly, many diehards preferred vynyl to CD, saying the latter is too clear.

    It's really a case of what you're used to.

    If you persevere with your Sony, I bet you'll look at your old TV next month and wonder how you ever watched it!

    If you still prefer the old one, I'm very willing to take the Sony off your hands!
