Certain channels seem washed out abit lately. The real test is when you compare OTA HD to E* feed of local hd's. Most of the time they are pretty equal.
Now the Tech Chat the other night; was one of the worse pictures I have ever seen on E*. Then to top it off, the nightly rain fade we have been experiencing with these crazy weather we have had here in WNY. I have had more rain fade in the last two weeks than I have had in 6 years E*.
The comparison of OTA and LIL HD does not help me because the Los Angeles HD LIL's are EXCELLENT. Hardly any difference. In fact the HD LIL is over all superior to the OTA, even when connected directly to the TV where jaggies are prominent, but not on the L.A. HD LIL's. L.A. HD LIL's are SUPERB! Now, let's hope Dish keeps it that way. They really are among the best looking HD channels on Dish. they always look superior to some of the sat HD channels. L.A. HD LIL's are a pleasure to watch.
