    I have recently bought a KD-28DL11 Sony TV, my problem is that even though the reception is apparantly high the picture quality is a little poor. You can kind of see the pixels on some programmes on digital and it is a little snowy on analogue, but the text is always very clear and sharp.

    I think my aerial may be a little loose as on analogue tv it was a little snowy even with my old tv, but will fixing the aerial make the pixels disapear or is this the standard quality of this tv? I mainly watch tv via the built in freeview

    My aerial is only a few years old so I know I do not need a new one.

    Any advice?

    A 'pixelised' picture would normally denote a reception problem and not a TV issue.

    Thats what I thought... on my old freeview box it was a fine picture, but could the dodgy aerial connection to my new tv/freeview make the picture a little worse than my old box?

    If you know what I mean :)

    hi you will find that analogue on these sets will be poorer than the quality of say the kv28hx15 but that is because the reception goes into the digitl tuner and what ever signal is dispersed is just the rubbish that the digital tuner cannot use and so goes into the analogue tune. ull find that if you connect the aerial straight into the analogue tuner you picture quality will be loads better hope this helps

    If it is pixellated this is on transmission, I would say try channel 5 but SDN are taking the pee with bit rates so try BBC1 or BBC4 - they should be good.

    The analogue tuners ain't so hot - I find my analogue is poor but digital is excellent.

    Is this TV bigger than your old one?
