Hi, I'm off tV shopping with a completely open mind - looking at anything from a 32" widescreen to 42" RPTV's. As you know, chain stores have terribly set up systems - different feeds, grainy and noisy signals. The best I've seen was Powerhouse in Barnsley - they had all four major brand 36" CRT's showing DVD's but sadly vastly different films: Planet of the Apes, SWE1TPM, Final Fantasy and Pearl Harbour.... not really suitable for comparisons. I have a digital camcorder with composite video output and wondered if this would make a good portable source to take with me into the stores (providing of course I declare it to the security first). Oh, I should say I'm only going to 'look' at the TV's in store but will probably use something like pricerunner to find the best deal. I appreciate that composite is not the best AV method but even so, if I do use this as a source, can I perhaps ask for some tips on what to include on the tape I take with me? I'm thinking: Natural tones, skin, sky and foliage. Perhaps some extreme tones such as very red objects etc. What else might show up the inadequacies of the sets? Would for example a line at almost horizontal show up any pixelation tendencies of a TV? What implications does 100Hz have over a camcorder signal? In general, my viewing is likely to be DVD from playstation2, digital satellite sports channels, news 24 and movies. Many thanks in advance for any advice you can give me.
