[QUOTE=phocis850;2199313]It only took 9 months, but at least someone else has noticed.
I have a very keen eye for detail, as I do graphic design.
My tv is still not the problem.
Anyone else want to think I’m not crazy? :p[/QUOTE]
You haven’t provided any info on your HT setup, so nobody can really comment much about your own personal experiences. However, there is one glaring possibility that you may not be thinking through.
You used to think DVDs looked real good. Then you started watching HD video, then DVDs didn’t look very good any more. I don’t think that’s such a revelation or even unexpected. Certainly not food for conspiracy theories. Your perception simply changed.
There’s never any shortage of poorly mastered DVDs around, in fact they are the norm and not the exception. The same is also true of BD and HD-DVD, although it’s less obvious.
My recommendation to you is that you re-think your system and get yourself a top-tier DVD player that will upscale and de-interlace DVD to 1080p. The Oppo players, the DVDO-Edge and some of the really high-end hardware will do this, and DVDs look terrific even on large screens. Obviously, a quality monitor that is carefully calibrated is also required.
