    Picture Quality Issue on Enigma boxes with LED TVs

    I a little stuck with my new ET6000, picture quality. I have found that the HD picture is very good but the SD is very poor. I have the setting as 1080i played about with the Video enhancement setting, turned of video enhancement on the TV LG 47inch LED. Also downloaded the auto resolution plugin which has not made much of a difference.

    I know that its not the best picture it can be because when I plug the old box (AZbox Premium HD) the picture HD & SD is excellent. Love all the other things on the box, VIX image is the ONE, speed is lightning quick but the SD image is very poor.

    The picture in SD is not sharp at all. Looks like you are looking through a tinted galss. The writing (logo and feed along the bottom) on the news channels look very pixelated. I would have to say its worst then the Sly box.

    I have been told that this could be because I have a LED TV and E2 boxes work best with plasma TVs. Apparently the SD image with Enigma boxes is not very good on LCD or LED TVs. I just need to check if this could be the case.

    I have heard many people says the image is excellent but what type of TVs do you have? Does anyone have a LED which has good SD picture? Is there any setting I should tinker with to try and fix this. Not sure what all the picture settings change.

    Need to decide if I keep the box so want to find out if it can be fixed or I go back the the Az.

    Many thanks

    Thanks for the quick response. Have tried both setting like you said on the TV but I thing the standard still is best. Going to keep tinkering with it to find a decent picture. Even dark scenes in HD have lots of 'noise'. Have you ever seen it preform better on another type of TV (LCD or Plasma) compared to your LED?

    I think its a sharpness or scaling issue. Is there somewhere on the Xtrend (VIX) where I can tweak these?

    Many thanks

    Thanks mate, Really useful. Need to confirm if there was something about the box not LED.

    I see you have a Solo as well. Is the any better on the LED or is it the same issue?

    Have you tried a non Enigma box like the Azbox

    Best regards

    True, It cost me a fair few bucks. With the Azbox it has crystal clear HD picture an the best SD picture I have ever seen. Shame you can not up its processor so it can be a half decent when it comes to speed.

    You can enable it in the Autoresolution plugin, also you will get nowhere near the picture quality of a decent calibrated plasma with an LCD TV, an LED TV is actually a LCD and the reference to LED is merely the method of backlighting used.
    For best results with any TV it is normally recommended to turn off any of the TV's inbuilt processing effects as they generally cause more problems than they cure.
    Take a look at this post here if you wish to attempt a bit of your own calibration, obviously ignore the bit about flashing images.

    EDIT forgot to say on your image turn the scaler sharpness down if you are getting pixellated writing on screen.
