Hello, I recently got a Sony KDL-65W850A (Sony gave it to me for free because there was a problem with my old television set). I have all my devices (PS3/Rogers box/satellite) connected to a receiver for my sound system, and the receiver is connected to my TV through an HDMI and an optical cable. With my old sony tv (52") everything looked amazing, crisp as could be. Now I connect my receiver to my new tv and all of a sudden the picture quality isnt great (sucks). Its is pixelated and just doesnt amaze anyone who is watching it. Could anyone please help me? I will list some of the specifications of my setup below if that helps, also i will tell you everything i did to try fixing it.

Setup:
TV : Sony KDL-65W850A
Receiver: Yamaha RX-A730
Rogers Box: Explorer 4250 HD
HDMI Cables: 1.4 (rocketfish)
(If you need any more information please tell me)

I have tried:
Switching HDMI Cables
Direct connecting to devices directly to tv ( no reciever )
Playing 1080p content from USB / media server
changing options on tv (noise reduction etc)
using all tv modes (wide/normal etc..)

I have called sony and notified them, they asked me to send pictures / videos of the problem. I sent a video clearly displaying the issue and they said they could not notice anything. Please help me I have no other options!! Thanks

Depends on how far you were viewing the Sony TV from.

Your 52 inch TV would be looking great at a certain distance.

But now you're up to 65 inches. Off course at that resolution you will notice grains and pixelations if you sit very close to it.

That's like the zooming effect.

Use Photoshop and try to zoom in on pictures. You will notice the blurs visible if you increase the resolution to zoom.

At 65 inches if you really wanted to sit at that distance and not notice any pixelations or anything, you would need to invest in a 4k tv which would cost you a hell lot more.

Pretty sure your old tv was simply better at what you are doing with it. The larger size generally causes issues with crispness.
Another thing is that the X-Reality PRO being on or off might be causing issues.
