call what you wish. 720 is grainy and 1080 is not. 480 looks like a damn 1950's, rabbit eared signal.

Neither are fat bastards that, even though they are prone to losing them, keep buying expensive sunglasses.

Sounds like an issue with the actual video being played. 720p and 1080p don't dictate the quality of the encoding, they only dictate that the resolution match with the standard. A crappy encode can have artifacting, and still be 720p.



Assuming you have a 70" TV, you're saying you're sitting between ~9' and ~13' away? I doubt, even within this range, with a 70" TV, you would be able to tell the difference between 720p and 1080p, unless they were displayed side by side, and you spent considerable time trying to evaluate which was which.

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that you probably buy the $80 monster HDMI cables because you think you can perceive some quality difference.

perhaps. We have WOW here at the house. It could possibly be a signal issue.

I have seen prices lower than monoprice, but not on a regular basis. Monoprice is my go-to site for pretty much anything A/V or data.
