    Anyone else getting the same choppy picture at times?

    It reminds me of the picture during NBA games on TNT.

    Is it an individual TV thing ? or just picture quality. My Samsung is around 4 years old now, didnt know if my technology has passed the times.

    Not just you. We are getting it too. Especially when they zoom in on a player that is moving.

    I have the exact same issue on tbs/tnt/truTV. I also use Mediacom and also use a Samsung. I assume those of us having problems all have something in common here...

    I switched to the standard def last night, because when players were running on the HD channel, they blurred a bit.

    The scoreboard on top reminds me how dizzying this whole 4-channel is. I am not a fan (yet).
