I hear ya. My MeTV affiliate is 720p HD now and they brag like they did something monumental. The only hd I see is the commercials, them older shows on the DT1 still look like 480i.....I remember when digital TV was lauded for PQ, 1080i even 720p picture was very good.
Now as stations pack their 6MHz with subchannels, PQ has dropped off the cliff, even 720p channels are looking bad.
We gripe at Dish for packing more HD channels on a TP but clamor for more ota channels packed into one frequency.
Not a lot of sense there.
