channels and content are actually upscaled versions of standard-definition

varies between channel and program.
• Confirm the picture quality by selecting Signal Diagnostics in the Product
Support settings (page 31). Then select Sample Image (or Additional
Information first). An HD image will display on the screen to confirm routine
panel operation. If your normal picture quality is worse than this sample image,
it is most likely due to the signal provided by the broadcaster.
• Check cable/antenna connections.
• Check the antenna location and direction.
• Check if the antenna is broken or bent.
• Check if the antenna has reached the end of its serviceable life. (3-5 years in
normal use, 1-2 years at the seaside.)
• Keep the TV away from noise sources such as cars, motorcycles, or hair-dryers.
• If using 300 ohm twin lead, move the excess lead away from the TV or try using
75 ohm coaxial cable instead. for US Support for Canadian
