From my understanding they're sending the same thing over the fiber that they are OTA, so it will be the original mpeg2 signal - so it will be susceptable to all the recompression degradation mentioned before.

I guess the point of my post was that Dish starts with the same signal we (OTA) do.


...oops - got a phone call in the middle of posting and took a while to post - Brett said what I was thinking already :)

Exactly. Don't we all wish that Dish would send out the signal in the same quality as what they are receiving. That would be great wouldn't it. Bottom line is Dish's HD locals will NEVER look as good as what is being sent out via OTA broadcast. They will always do addition compression on the signal.

A transponder with 8PSK at Dish's settings is around 39.6 Mbit/sec. Voom used to run them higher. That is why VOOM had more rain fade issues.

The network feed already comes MPEG-2 compressed. Some stations compress it more to carry more subchannels.
