So I just got a new Samsung smart TV and pq seems terrible now thru dish but netflix and vudu look incredible. Was my old 1080p Vizio just not nice enough to notice the compression?
I agree. I only watched about 4 channels with this tv and 3 of them didn't look good. A movie I watched on vudu really made the tv look great thoughI agree. I just purchased the Samsung ks8000 series tv and a lot of channels look like crap. Hgtv maybe one of the worst. Dish's over compression is really showing on the newer tvs. If I was out of contract, I would seriously consider switching to Direct.
Other people's faces look life like on other sources. Just not dishI had a Samsung hdtv for about three days about a year ago and the colors were never right on people's faces . Everyone either looked like a Simpson character or an orange Cheeto. I quickly took that tv back because no matter what I did on picture adjustments made no difference.

Samsung never impressed.I have a new (got in April) Sony XBR65X930D 65" and the picture from Dish looks better than it did on the 60" Samsung it replaced.
The old tv is a Vizio it's still works great but it's lcd and it's starting to look like the back light is losing life so I figured it was time to get a new one it's about 6 or 7 years old so I'd say it lasted awhile. I'm not going to get rid of it. It's going to replace the LG burned an image into a couple years backSamsung never impressed.
Its more Hype than actual PQ.
Thats why I ended up with the Vizio M series.
Way more for the money, and far better PQ than anything I could see from Samsung under $1000.
But next I'm going back to all Sony.
I've had nothing but Sony from the 1990s up until 2007, and the PQ was great, and Never Hiccups with audio synchronization , always easy calibrated.
The Vizio is nice, and functionality is great PQ is awesome, But it still has the Cheap factor that makes me wonder whats in store as far as reliability in the future.

I haven't tried that I'll have to give it a shotI set my output from my Dish receiver to 720p from 1080i. Seemed to help with the compression artifacts and motion blur. Progressive will almost always look better than interlaced. Have you tried the 720p setting?
