    One can look better than the other.

    Just depends on the source unit and the display...

    Is HDMI 1 or 2 "sharing" the input with component or VGA? If there is a VGA cable connected, along with the subsequent audio cables, remove them and just leave the HDMI cable installed. Next make sure that the input is set to HD from SD.
