It could be. Maybe try the "motion flow" or whatever it is called on your HDTV if it is jerkey; otherwise if it is macroblocking, IDK how to fix it. I was watching some on NBC Sports last night and it looked fine using my HDHR Prime..
Ok I think I figured it out I just did a comparison between my tv and projector both have the same problem. Everything on MSNBC is fine NBC sports network picture is fine with still or slow moving close up shots but distance shots are a little fuzzy if that makes sense and there's a ton of macro blocking on fast moving close up shots.Everything was fine during the NHL playoff's on NBC sports network.So I think I can rule out a problem on my end.
I was under the impression that the feeds out of the UK are at 50 fps at 1080i. Wouldn't that cause a degradation in PQ compared to the 60 fps you'd get out a US broadcast?
I will say the NBC soccer and basketball olympic channels do look pretty bad compared to the other NBC feeds.
The NBC Sports soccer feeds this past weekend were terrible on Dish.
