RE: What do they use, Cable, Sattelite?

They use cable and internet. I don't have a problem with them preferring an appealing & bright demo mode which is usually used to sell the TV sets in the store but they also use that digital enhancement like mentioned true motion so all the movies look like soap operas. I tried to get rid of the smoothing effect on the older LG TV set and could not. On the never LG TV set there was the option but it didn't get rid of the effect to a satisfying degree. Since I was not in the market to buy TV at that time and TV's are not my area of interest I assumed that the advanced TV's are "useless junk" for my purpose hence the question. Also , it's not really polite to change the setting of someone TV set when they like it AS IS and they just bought "the newest model".
In the end I bought "no name" LED on Ebay. Whole 21" of it and it is OK once I got the settings at 40% of the value :). It is used for Air antenna and with DVD.
My friendly dealer still has its first 42" $10k low res plasma in the store. He said it was professionally calibrated. I like the picture quality of that set quite a bit.
Thanks to all that replied and all the best.
