[qanda]This thread is about the Samsung LN46A550. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]I have had the Panasonic DVD-S29 for a couple of years, and it has produced superb picture rendition on an older Toshiba 27" CRT television. We just bought a Samsung 46" LCD TV, and the DVD picture is noticeably worse. There is a moire or checkerboard pattern, where it looks like a mesh has been paid over some portions of the screen. This pattern occurs only with the DVD player, not with our TiVo DVR (which, in general, outputs a lower resolution picture than the DVD player). Is there some incompatibility with the two machines? Or is there a software issue?
I’m wondering if I need to upgrade the DVD player to something like an Oppo, but if there’s a quick fix I’d greatly appreciate it!
