"Very Annoyed" - I see you haven't yet mellowed since you joined!
I'm just interested to know what you would like us to do about your problem? As you've said, the manufacturers don't sell CRTs any more, but none of us here are manufacturers I'm afraid (or at least in positions whereby we could make those decisions). A few people have advised trying to buy a decent secondhand CRT off Ebay - have you tried this?
Other than that, I'm afraid consistently pointing out the same view that you don't like the picture on your HD set to a group of people that do isn't going to get you anywhere (except perhaps "Very Annoyed"!). Don't get me wrong - you absolutely have the right to express your opinion, it just seems to me you're expressing it again and again and again on these forums, rather than actually taking any action to solve your problem and then perhaps reporting back to those that agree with you whether it was successful or fruitless, maybe then asking for more suggestions if it was fruitless.
Just seems to be a bit more proactive maybe and might help your stress levels!
I don't really disagree with anything you have said there.
However, people are saying that it MUST be a faulty set, or a poor signal. I don't agree, and I am not the only one who thinks that moving pictures are a problem on these modern TV's. I don't want to pay extra for HD, and so I probably will look at the second hand CRT route for a short period of 2-3 years. (Only about £50.) By then, hopefully things will have improved. (both TV's and signal)
But as it is irritating people who don't seem to have any problems with their picture or can't see the problems with there picture, I won't comment on this subject any more.
Yawn.....doesnt like plasma! jeez ....just the name makes me jump...look the ole CRT is quaint but not nearly as sexy as the plasma, big is definately better and if you arent wiling to pay for HD then yes you should stick to the old technology....if you want to buy my old 28" for 50 quid you are more than welcome....piece of old junk in my mind. Anyone trying to convince themselves that the old way is better probably doesnt agree with DVD or with post 11 TV broadcasting...
I cant wait until i decide which 50 ".......50! I will buy.....wait until 2010.?..you have to be joking.....who knows who is going to be alive in the next decade...and I aint waiting around to find out...bring on the plasma is what I say.....
I think we are all gettng "Very Annoyed" with this thread now, you keep re-iterating on about CRT's, if your not happy with your tv, do something about it take it back get an old CRT, if thats what you want.
i dont even think the tired forum article stands up on picture quality, i have been home with my folkes to a excellent sony and Panny crt and well i think your either disalutioned. blind or both, as good as the quality is why does all my family members say wow when watching footy on my plasma and i say can we watch this at my house on the old CRT. I respect your opinion but its in the minority and seems a bit confrontational. If you think its better sell your Plasma and stick to your CRT but dont tell people tha the Plama from Panny is a bad set because to the majority its an award winning great set across the board on HD and SD. Foorball doesnt suffer from motion issues and neither does hd at 24fps, so to a lot of people with space/budget concerns its the perfect set i dont think you should be cloudind that judgement based on your controlversial opinions
please appologies im in the second year studying english i think i have many gramatical and spelling issues?
Well, I wouldn't say it was irritating me, I just wanted to try and help really and try and focus you (and anyone else) on what should be their main concern which is finding the best solution for them. By all means, pass your own knowledge and experience on to others and if it helps them, then that's fantastic and it's what these forums are all about. It's just sometimes you can go too far!
(and looking at some posts which have come after yours, please understand, this is not directed entirely at you, and some people on the other side of the fence could learn the same lesson!)
I would just say check your set up again, as the picture should be good, i have a 42 lg plasma and the picture on everything i watch which is a lot of fast action sport, movies and gaming is fantastic. " title="" width="24" height="23" class="smiley-class smileysProcessed" />
Think it might be sorted after nearly 5 years!

Whereas I would just say it might be an idea to check the date on a thread before replying to it. This one is almost 5 years old!
No signature worth mentioning...
Yes, I too can see that this is an old thread but I too have the 42'' of this tv... it's quite fantastic so I'm guessing as others say... the set-up is wrong OR you got the 'knackered' one from the assembly line ?
The picture is great no matter what is thrown at it (maybe not dirt or jam....)
I was going for a Sony 'W' series tv at the time (which was THE big thing it seemed) but was swayed to this Pana set by things Clair and Andy said to me.... glad I listened to them as my mother-in-law has one of the Sony 'W' series and it's no where near as good as my Pana. (I do always tell her that her picture is fine though)
