    Just to update the above. I picked up the HD6670 today and installed this afternoon - a painless install TBH.

    What a difference! The picture looks superb and no pixelation at all. I have tried the limited Freeview HD channels and all are performing flawlessly, bar a couple of dropped frames. I have had the athletic championships on for some time - rapid movement and whole screen rapid panning and it played great.

    The bonus was the shop I went to was offering a 10% discount for today on the graphic card I was looking at, so enough in the budget to have a couple of pints too ;)

    Found the solution on a forum. With Samsung LCDs you have to change the input (e.g. HDMI 1) type to "PC". It then handles the signal differently. Picture is crystal clear now. Stupid Samsung. Thanks for your help.

    What driver version shows up in nvidia control panel, if later than 276.xx you may find that could be the culprit, even though logs showing ffdshow video filter not found. Also reinstall any codecs after changing any video or audio driver as this may affect associations influenced by the driver within the registry. If you think it...
