I apologize ..I don't use this site much ..but when I do I really appreciate the answers/feedback.

My father has a new Plasma ..

When you change a channel why does it take so long to change ..it seems to be about 5 seconds.

If his DirecTV box has "native" set to on, then there's a delay when channel surfing as the box is changing resolution before feeding the signal to the TV. Set native to off and the delay should go away.
