so I'm a noob to the world of lcd tv, hdtv, etc etc. anyway we just bought a 37 LG a few weeks ago. we have directtv HD hooked up via HDMI and a non converting dvd player hooked up via component.
from time to time (4 or 5 total) I have noticed pretty bad pixelation. last night it was a big brown checkered spot. it's been white and can't remember what else. it's not a small spot either. about 3 or 4 inches of the screen. can't remember if it's happened on HD but it has on regular broadcast and on dvds playing xvid files. I think it's happened more with the xvids on the dvd player.
a little research tells me it could simply be the signal form the dvd player/broadcast is not fast enough. bad description I know but it was something to that effect. I also have read about calibrating the set but I'm not paying $300 to do it. I've tried a few settings I found online and may buy/dl a calibration dvd.
basically I want to know how common this is and if we should return the TV? of course our first thought was to return it but reading a bit online it seems it may not be the TV at all. but again the pixelation is pretty bad when it happens.
