I just bought a sony bravia kdl 46S4100. my current set up is a standard directv satellite receiver hooked up to the tv.... i will be getting a hd receiver in one week. in the mean time, the picture seems slightly fuzzy or soft looking then instantly it gets focused or sharp looking. what's the deal? it it because i don't have an hd receiver yet? or did i missed something. all the channels are like that. it's like it is cycling soft to sharp on a continuous basis. hopefully someone on this forum will know what i am talking about. i hate to take this thing back, but if i have to i will. thanks for any inputs.

Don't judge the tv till you hook up the HD service. SD has all sorts of problems on HD tvs and until you have some type of HD source, it's impossible to decide about the tv's pic quality.

One week for the HD service gives you plenty of time for judging. Just be sure you use either HDMI or component (red/green/blue) cables for your HD and then see how it looks.
