    Hi I purchased a Samsung LE32R51BD yesterday and am generally very happy with it, I was watching X-Men 2 this afternoon which i had recorded using my Sky+ box, in certain parts of the movies its as if there wasn't enough colours to cope, in scenes where fog or steam was displayed ect it was pixelated. reminded me of when i used to play games in 16bit as apposed to 32bit colour.

    Is this normal.?

    Thanks

    I wouldn't worry about it too much. It is a result of the poor compression used by the Sky+ box rather than a fault of the TV itself.

    DivX will likely show up the same artifacting as well. The DivX HD clips are particularly bad for this. :)

    A good DVD should look fantastic though. I'd recommend going for an "Oppo" DVD player; best quality you'll find in that price range. (although you might get some lip-sync issues on certain discs; a side-effect of being Faroudja based.
