I have just purchased the Sony KDL40W2000 Television and after installation i found the picture quite disappointing. It is a bit fuzzy and nothing like the Demo model that i seen in the store. I am using a Virgin Cable analogue supply and i thought that it would suffice until i went Digital in the future. I am using a Panasonic DMR-EX85EB DVD recorder along with the TV. The Recorder has a HDMI outlet and this along with the HDMI inlets on the TV I was wondering that if I went Digital plus used a HDMI cable to link them together if I would get a greatly improved picture quality.
I have already tried a DVD disc and viewed it on the Telly and the quality was not too bad but certainly not as good as I thought it would be, again if I used a HDMI link would this also be an improved picture quality.
Could anyone please assist me in this matter.

Using the HDMI cables probably will improve your picture but my suggestion would be to properly calibrate your new TV's video settings with a tune up disc like AVIA or Digital Video Essentials which is available in NTSC or PAL.
New TV's are notorious for coming out of the box with the settings set too high so that they will look good on the display floor, commonly called "torch mode". A video tune up disc makes a world of difference in the picture quality.
