    ROOT sports HD?

    Just got a new Samsung 40'' 1080p tv that is 120hz. ROOT has always been 720p (at best) right? Also is it normal for it to have alot of pixelation? I mean the players almost look blurry at times when making fast movements. I can tell it's not to TNT or ESPN standards but come on, it's been like this for years...

    I bought a 43" Samsung plasma which is 600hz and it looks amazing! Although Root sports HD is no where near as good as ESPN, TNT ect.

    This is probably your TV. You have something like motion control or tru motion.

    You need to mess with the settings so that you will not have these annoying flickerings during fast moving pictures.

    I just looked online for the idea settings for my samsung tv, and used them. The picture looks much better now than out of the box.

    Yeah Im on the right channel. I'm talking about the quality of ROOT HD. The scoreboard looks 1080p but anything on camera that moves is clearly not up to other channels or sports in 1080p. Watching in 3D is cool though.

    If I'm not mistaken all cable TV broadcasts at 720p.

    Some are 1080i. Hard to tell the difference for most ppl. Also, many tvs or cable boxes will convert the incoming signal to one or the other, so possible your tv tells you everything is 720p

    Your issue may be that you have 3d mode on when the game is not being captured in 3d. Only a handful of sporting events a year are in 3d and are on espn3d. The guy selling you on the 3d feature of the tv probably failed to mention there's little content available in 3d. Sure the tv can "upconvert" to 3d but in reality it just makes the picture worse. Turn it off and you'll probably see improvement.
