I think what you are seeing is mainly a difference in size. Anytime you blow up a 640x480 SD picture to the size of most HDTV sets, you are going to see artifacts. If you want more info on this see: Poor SD On HDTVs

Also there is another phenomenon that is in your head. When a SD picture is displayed on a HDTV the difference in pixels must be "made up" by the video scaler. Different HDTVs will have various degrees of accuracy here. The fact is your brain is much better at "filling in" the missing detail than most video processors.

You has ask nice question (Nothing for ignorance) Sometime our TV resolution doesn't set. We have to set the picture quality according to our need. We should use the next highest input resolution. Generally any good plasma TV should has 720p resolution.

Thanks

Yes you have a nice question( Nothing for ignorance). Some time our TV resolution is not set properly. We should use highest input resolution. Generally a good plasma TV has at least 720p resolution.

Question Re: Confuse to buy TV

Thanks boys,these answers sure filled a void in my limited knowledge about HD TV'S.So what you are saying is that the new HD TV'S are ahead of the low quality signals transmited by the present TV stations.My guess would be that when the now present analogue signals will turn to digital signals,and especially on the HD channels,then the picture should be much better.Will the picture quality then be at least somewhat close to the DVD quality image,or will there still be a limited improvement due to still compressed signals transmitted.Of course,I'm talking signals transmitted by either cable or satellite.Never mind the terrestrial antenna signals for now.

From those sources you will not see any difference. Satellite and cable providers re-encode their signals to what you have now and the cut-off will not change that at all. If you want near DVD quality video OTA is how to get it, or DVDs of course.
