Hey, I was wondering if anybody had any solutions to this problem. I have a 50 inch ST50 show up yesterday and I just started messing with it. Everything seemed fine until I put in Tekken Tag 2 and got to the character select screen. All of the portraits looked blurry, when I pulled up the XMB I noticed the effect was there too. I exited the game and everything looked fine again. I tried a few other games and videos and the TV seems to play 1080i and 1080p fine but if I put in any game 720p or below (haven’t tried PS2 games yet) the blur effect is there. Since most PS3 games are 720p this presents a problem. It isn’t as noticeable from a “proper” viewing distance but I set close to the set so it’s a major eyesore.
I looked online but all could find was one guy jumping all over posting about it. While a few people said they noticed it too pretty much everyone else called the guy a liar or claimed his set was a fluke. So, I took my chances a bought the set since people were singing it’s praises. And this is what I got…
Here is a close up of the character select screen. Notice Angels blurry face:
For comparison here is my PSN Avatar in 1080p:
This is what it looks like in 720p:
Pretty sure the problem comes through in those pics. So, anything thoughts? My receiver is a Sony STR DG720 and I’m using HDMI cables. I tried hooking the PS3 directly to the TV and noticed the same issue. I don’t have cable so I don’t know if this effects regular TV.
