Well I had a 921 installed today and I can say two things. Voom does NOT look as good on Dish as it did on Voom and Dish HD all in all is NOT better then my Comcast HD.

But I'll take what I can get. At least I can record the voom channels on a DVR, something Voom never accomplished.

Have you looked at the Dish HDTV demo channel?

I watch a Mirage-LV aquarium for 45 minutes tonight.

Stunning!

Yes and it looks much better, I assume that's by design? Less Compression?

Try recalibrating your display for Dish, something is wrong with your setup.

I have to agree with Darrell, I think the channels look stunning on Dish. I am glad I had the second dish installed.

Go into your settings and make sure your 921 is outputting 1080i and not 420p...

Yes, my new 811 I installed yesterday was factory pre-set to 480p. After I changed it to 1080i, the picture improved. I have not tried 720p on my DLP yet.

I would set the receiver to out to the native resolution of your TV set.

I disagree with going native. I leave my stb at 1080i and let my pj downrez it, otherwise, you are letting the stb do the downrez and I get a better image by leaving it at 1080i. Try it both ways with your system and see which you prefer.
