Speaking of settings, mine was pro calibrated IFS day/night.
I notice the ISF settings lose a lot of the pop, in case people are expecting a brighter more pop picture, it will not be so.
Any Dish or Directv subscribers out here with a PRO-70X5?
I recently switched from Directv to Dish. I find with Dish local channels, example Fox channel 2 here in the Bay Area (San Francisco) that there is a lot of Mosquito Noise. I find it on almost every local channel. I'm wondering if Dish compresses more than Direct or if the Dish Hopper does not do as good a job at uncompressing as Directv's Genie.
I only had the Elite for about a week when I switched from Direct to Dish, 4 months ago. So my memory is not absolute in that Direct had a better picture with the local channels. I am focused on on the Mosquito Noise and why I have it.
I've tryied all the setting in the Elite and just can't seem go get rid of the Mosquito Noise. (Cnet, N3W813's Aug 2011 settings, other owners settings, tried them in all the settings, ISF day/night, Movie, Movie TXH, Pure, etc)
I only watch HD tv. SD is really bad on a 70" screen.
Any thoughts about this? Is there some magic box I'm not checking off that's keeping the Mosquito Noise? Showtime, Starz, HBO, all look fantastic, no Mosquito Noise at all. Which I think is because those signals are not a compressed as local.
Elite is dot to dot.
What say you about if the Hopper is not decompressing good enough or is it the Elite trying to decompress too, or not because the Hopper did it.
Definition of:mosquito noise
A distortion that appears near crisp edges of objects in MPEG and other video frames that are compressed with the discrete cosine transform (DCT). It occurs at decompression when the decoding engine has to approximate the discarded data by inverting the transform model. The mosquito noise appears as random aliasing in these areas and requires sophisticated detection circuits to eliminate it. As TVs get larger, mosquito noise and other artifacts become more noticeable.
