If the poster (tipster) could post any legitamate reference to suggest that the set is "doing its job" in any unique way by producing a grainy picture, that would be a big help.

Certainly a weak or poor siganl will result in various display problems, one of which could be graininess, but there is nothing in the OPs original post to point in this direction more than in several other directions if this is occuring.

No it isn't as I had the same problem when I got my FUNAI! It had turned out to be:

1. Needed a second AMP for another 4-way
2. Prior COx tech left a piece of plastic in the coax connector outside
3. Coax was so old it just broke apart and was replaced by 2.3GHz coax RG9 Ultra..

Now every all my 6 TV ranging from 2 x 13", 1x 15" LCD HDTV, 1x 19" LCD HDTV, 1x 27" CRT SDTV, 1x 36" CRT SDTV and 1 x 37" LCD HDTV all look as they should sharp and no grain or fuzzy on ally of the channels, premium or HD ones everything is rock solid.

I should have said above you now see grain or fuzzy it's not the TV it's your cable system where there is something not working right. Have it check out..

Well I don't know how SEAR thinks about the FUNAI it's either hidden like you say or at the bottom of the floor at my SEARS. Only the higher ones are nearby.. I was impressed by the sharpness and color being so vivid.. SEARS is more expenisive that the other stores if they need to compete, they better lower the prices. SEARS/KMART should also have FUNAI in stock also. I only got one of those type of stores but it's miles away.

Another big sale is CYBER Monday but that's online.. YOu have to order online and go to store of your choice to pick up the item..
Circuity City promotion is if you spend $250 you'll get 10% off using this code:

How did they do with those $199 19" LCD HDTV from Alco Electronics sold under Venturer at SEARS and ShopRite. Target uses the name Trutech?

Didn't you buy the FUNAI? Or did you get the Sharp? Can you guy snap some shot of the set in SD and HD. I would like to see how well it performs as FUNAI tells me..

Yeah I told the wife she told me your crazy!

I wanted to replace my 36" CRT and stick that in my family room, and put the 42" FUNAI in my living room. I got the stand ready for it.. Those prices will come around again.. I know the PQ on the 37" does look as you put it awsome..
