Question

Why is the picture quality at home not as good as what I saw in the shop?

Answer

The quality of the image you are watching is related to the quality of the signal going into your TV. In the shop you may have been watching a High Definition (HD) signal.

At home, you are probably watching video content coming from a Standard Definition (SD) source. A video signal in Standard Definition (SD) is of lower quality than a video from an HD source.

Typical examples of HD-sources are:

  • a Blu-ray Disc player with a movie in HD
  • a digital HD receiver (Set-top box) with a subscription to HD channels from a Cable or Satellite provider
  • an Over-the-air HD broadcaster (signals received via an outdoor antenna)
  • a HD channel on your cable network (signals received via a cable connection)

Typical examples of SD-sources are:

  • a DVD player
  • a video recorder
  • a digital receiver (Set-top box) with a subscription to non-HD channels (SD channels) from a Cable or Satellite provider
  • an Over-the-air analog or digital SD broadcaster (signals received via an outdoor antenna)
  • a SD channel on your cable network (signals received via a cable connection)

Ask your dealer for more information on how to receive HD pictures at home.
