    To all the Sony owners here,this is merely an observation,please don't flame me I'm not trying to antagonise you!I went into a Sony centre yesterday just out of interest.Whilst there I took a look at some of the sets with DRC,which I presume they were running.Well,they had the snooker on these sets and the balls weren't round they were tear drop shaped:eek: I thought the p+ on my Philips was bad but you should have seen this!Was it just poor set-up or is DRC really that bad?

    The aspect ratio will have been wrong. The snooker on BBC2 is in 4:3. I think it the TV will have been on SMART mode.

    Yes I notice that,I watch it on a digibox for that reason.If I leave my t.v on auto and switch to analogue BBC2 you lose the baulk end pockets!However,when I looked close at the Sony's screen the "tear trail" at the top of the balls seemed to be a processing artefact.

    I noticed it too, flicking between Movie/Live settings

    on Live, looking at the Yellow it's an EGG :rotfl:

    and the white also suffers

    the pockets also change if you flick between the 4 settings

    it's not the aspect ratios

    it's on now by the way if you wanna check :)

    Quite happy with colours etc, maybe i am not picky enough ?
    but
    are poeple happy with the definition of the picture,
    i still seem to have all the balls slightly out of focus when viewing the full table, and studio shots of all three presenters very poor ,

    is this the accepted picture quality/signal strength or shoudl i be looking at getting someone to review the service menu settings.

    I watched the snooker via Freeview and the widescreen picutre is perfect with excellent RGB colours.
    I find Sony's DRC is better than Philips equivalent.
    (I had a Philips tv before I got the Sony).
