I apologize if this specific problem is in another thread (I did search)....
I have observed that the picture quality when the video signal is sent throught the DMR is poor. If I switch to the satellite input (through a receiver), the PQ is much improved. Specifically, when run through the DMR input, there is significant pixelation and ghosting effects. Not a pretty picture, and not one I like recording. This effect occurs during playback and viewing the live signal. I'm confused , as you'll see from my connection, the PQ should be improved through the DMR.
Sharp LC 32DA5U (32" Aquos LCD)
R15---->Receiver (via composite video plug)
R15---->DMR (via S-video)
Receiver---->TV (via composite video plug)
DMR---->TV (via component video)
R15--->DMR (via stereo connection)
DMR--->Receiver (via Digital Optical)
This requires that the DMR is "on" all the time, but allows digital output from the receiver, and I do not have to change the receiver input when changing between satellite and DMR signals.
The R15 does not have component outputs (only S-video/HDMI/composite). I have checked all connections. I have not connected the coax to the DMR or TV (trying to get decent PQ first).
I should also mention that this occurs even if I disconnect the R15--->receiver video plug.
Thanks beforehand for the help and/or suggestions!
