Dish network is blurry

Running through a coax cable, the 32" lcd is pretty clear. With the 46 lcd is blurry...

Can't find any settings to make it better. I tried connecting through the red/yellow/white cables and that didn't help any either.

HDMI is not available on my sat box.

Whatcha think the issue could be? The bigger TV I go the more unclear it gets?(non HD)

Yessir. I was getting sick of my projector hooked to the satellite until I was able to upgrade to the HD programming. HD programming and HDMI and I'm very pleased.

May just have to take this back and purchase a smaller TV. Not really wanting to upgrade to HD right now.

Hopefully BestBuy doesn't charge 15% restocking fee on TVs. Receipts aren't saying anything about the fee on TVs. Anyone seen differently?

I believe TVs should be exempt from the restocking fee, but I honestly don't remember from my time there.

Not having HD is your problem. The bigger you go, the worse it will look.

Switching to HD is worth every penny. What you're doing is like trying to power your W7 from your head unit.

Oh, and coax FTL. I didn't know anyone still used that.

The extra bills and waiting on equipment isn't worth it to me right now, maybe in a year when I move. Taking it back today and picking up a 32 where the picture is fine.
