I was watching the hd channels this morning, home and garden and hd news look like the bit rate has been turned down or something while the hd ppv movie bloodrayne looks great. All hd channels should have the same bit rate,we pay extra for the hd channels so in a way they are ppv. I've had dish hd for two years and the hd quality has gone down. The 1st college football game I watched when I first got hd was Georgia vs South Carolina and the picture then was great, they play today I bet the picture will not be as good two years later and it should be better than two years ago. I hope dish will do something about hd quality.
