And prey tell me what TV you have that you would see the difference.bruce said:Wow, so Voom's demise is due to DarrellP questioning the picture, I wonder if Esophagus_Constrictor will get upset that the Voom channel's resolution was only 1440 x 1080i instead of 1920 x 1080i.
I've seen all of 1 TV ever that actually displayed 1920x1080 pixels and it was $7k for a 27".
If you're got a 50k rp tv that can actually natively do 1080i, step up and bitch.
I'm sure thee are projectors out there that will truely do 1080i but again, not at the 'sane person would buy one' price.
Back to the topic at hand. Voom was tweaking thie PQ like daily. I saw the macro-blocking a lot. I have yet to see Dish's HD. I just got Cox cable's HD and while it doesn't Macroblock like Voom did, it does 'hiccup' a lot. It acts just like my ATI HDWonder HDTV tuner card for my PC does when the computer get's bogged down. I've got DVR recordings of the hiccups
