Pixelated DVDs Samsung TV


2019 Flying Cloud 25FB

Actually the larger living room Samsung has a poor very pixelated picture on SOME dvds. Most are fine but it seems of some TV shows on dvd many are pixelated beyond enjoyment. BUT look GREAT on the smaller bedroom TV!

So it seems like perhaps the dvds themselves are optimized for a smaller screen but that makes no sense in 2021! I'm trying to watch Longmire Complete Series which is only a couple years old......

I can't find any setting that makes better. Tried various aspect ratios and 720 or 1080 or improvement. Adjust setting like sharpness etc...marginally better but still poor.

Is it the dvd player (the stock Samsung) the TV or some dvds?

The idea the smaller TV looks great suggests.....something...

Any advice appreciated!

Are they DVD's or Blu-ray? DVD into a 720/1080p TV will look terrible. DVD is 480p so when the TV renders it, the pixilation is the interpreted rendering.

Stick a Blu-ray in it and you'll see the difference.
