I know cable "break-in" is a routinely disputed/discussed topic, but something occurred to me that I hadn't realized--or put together--until now.
Television. Has anyone else ever noticed how it seems that your tv picture seems to improve over time, after first being connected via cable or satellite? I noticed this both with digital cable, and when we upgraded to satellite. The first 3 or 4 days the picture was acceptable, but not what I had hoped. Then over the course of that week it seemed to improve--significantly.
This got me to thinking, maybe what I am seeing are the video cables breaking-in?
