:mad: Is it just me or did HD theater PQ suck this weekend ? I was watching the Mecum car auction and the picture was constantly pixelating and macroblocking. Was almost unwatchable. I switched over to NFL HD and the pic quality was some of the best I've seen that wasn't OTA . What gives ? If this is the symtom of more compression and cutting back on bandwidth, we *E customers are in for a bumpy ride. :eek:

I don't even watch the mpeg2 hd channels anymore they are so bad and it's especially bad when there is fast motion.

What mpeg2 channels are left? Or, are HBO, ESPN and TNT still mpeg2?

You guys are too close to the TV, move back about 35 feet.

Has D* announced or implied anything about a MPEG4-for-MPEG2 receiver swap or ultra-cheap upgrade for current MPEG2-only HD customers?
