Went to a tv store today who have the Pioneer PDP-LX5080D in a demo room. The guy put spiderman 3 blu ray on as the demo disc and sure enough the picture looked fantastic sittin at about 7ft away from the tv. I asked him if he could show me some standard def footage and sure enough he put on a dvd of Nemo, this looked okay i must admit. However, i wanted to see live action footage and not animation so i asked him to put on a dvd which i had just purchased, the dvd being Aliens Special Edition. I was shocked! Not at shear brilliance but at how poor the picture looked, the picture was so grainy and even seemed slightly pixalated!! The guy said "if that doesnt impress you then i dont know what does" I looked at him and thought yeah mate okay! Were my eyes playin tricks with me because i expected too much?? Or does this tv not handle standard dvds all that well??? Some please help as i do not wish to spend £3500 on a tv which i wont be able to enjoy my vast dvd collection!!??? Will the 428XD do exactly the same with standard def images??
